Coming into the Red Mountain Mining Community.







5.5 mile tunnel!!!








A look over the info sign to some of the old infrastructure.








Leaving the RMMC, this road...









...just begs to be ridden...









...that is, if you like the curves!








A look back as we head to the summit of Red Mountain Pass. What amazing views!








I did not realize, until looking at this photo, that Red Mountain Summit was this high. For some reason Molas Pass feels higher.









Over 11,000 feet! A look back at the summit.








So glad to be riding this road...







More in next post.

...it is an absolute blast to ride.








A look back.








Mary, holding the camera way out off the side at 55 mph thru the curves.











Spectacular views! It took us 1500+ miles to get here, but it's worth it!







Just amazing, this is a shot looking back as we come down the hill into Silverton.








View from road right outside of Silverton.









We've spent a few days in Silverton a couple of years ago. We decide to ride on, Molas Pass is just 7 miles ahead.








We do not get very far before I realize that the coolant I added yesterday was not doing the job. We stopped to call the Harley Store in Silverton to see if they have coolant there.

They do, so after taking in the view a bit...








...we head back thru the curves to Silverton.






More of todays adventures as time allows for posting.
