Road through the High Country
Cinnamon Pass, Colorado, 2014
The Alpine Loop Scenic and Historic Byway is 65 miles of roads between Ouray, Silverton, and Lake City that traverse some of the most dramatic mountain landscapes accessible by road in the U.S. A high-clearance, four-wheel-drive section of the road climbs up and over Cinnamon Pass (12,640'), the tenth-highest pass in the state of Colorado. I made this photograph just as some rainy weather was clearing. Photo © copyright by Greg Owens.
