Making my way back to Silverton I decide I have enough time to check out Ophir Pass. I had no plans to cross this pass during my trip but I wanted to do a quick over and back just to experience the view and see what kind of snow lurks at the peak!
On the way up...
In view of Ophir Pass from the Silverton side, the snow looks promising!
Surely the plows carving these paths were piloted by expert mountain men! Some of the walls were well over 15 ft tall!
