After tripping up Imogene we decided the next day to head on over to the Alpine Loop. I knew this would be great for Nigel as he had never been on it.
We had to traverse the newly opened Ophir Pass twice, FUN!
The snow walls were still very high and the path narrow.
I knew we would not get past this piece of machinery in Silverton without photographing it.
I was right.....
The people of Silverton are ready for the tourist and on this day the weather below 11,000 ft. was perfect for a trail ride.
Out toward Animas Forks and beyond town are endless mines for those who have never made it out this way, lots of fun to explore. Be Safe when doing So!
I dropped the Adventure Trailer at Animas Forks where we had lunch and then headed up the loop. Not that the trailer wouldn't make it, it is just a lot quicker without it.
