Exploring Old Mining Routes

After driving the jeep over to Silverton with my parents earlier this summer, I did the same thing with Kyle and Allison, except this time around we explored a new route to Silverton and drove all the way to Ouray.  Engineer Pass coming up from Ouray was very rough, but the new route to Silverton (California Gulch to Hurricane Pass by Lake Como) was absolutely gorgeous.
