Ophir Pass

This is a great view of the shelf road of Ophir Pass taken from my Jeep while my husband's cousin drove our CJ-7 behind us. While some of the trails are taken slowly, Ophir Pass really is a shortcut for us when we drive to Silverton and Durango. This pass reaches an elevation of 11,789 feet above sea level and is one of the more mild trails in our area, although I admit this section makes me a little bit nervous!

The road scarcely seems to be clinging on to the hillside. Great shot!

We did this yesterday Aug. 18,2009 in a Mercedes SUV.
Not quite the right vehicle. We were slipping on the shale and did not have enough clearance. We made it, but I have never been more scared in my life
