Jeep Adventure Along The Alpine Loop


Last  Wednesday we rented a Jeep from Silver Summit in Silverton and headed out for a day-long adventure along the Alpine Loop. This is a spectacular drive and according to Outside Magazine it is ranked as one of the 10 best rides in the country - no argument from us.

Rather than try and describe this trip I am going to let the pictures do the talking - although, as so often is the case pictures do not do it justice.

Old mines...

Ghost towns - most notable of which was Animas Forks.

Even though it is at the end of the season...wildflowers.

Two amazing passes.

Wildlife. (That it folks - Marmots) 

Some "exciting" jeep roads.


Aspens beginning to turn.

And of course amazing vistas.

Exhilarating and a sensory overload.
