While camped at Black Canyon we took a day trip to Silverton. We had talked about driving through there on the way from Cortez to Montrose. However, the road is deemed by many experienced RVers as being precarious and we are not experienced (yet). Instead, we took what was actually a shorter route out of Cortez to Montrose through Ridgeway. We really wanted to check out both the road over Red Mountain Pass and both Ouray and Silverton. Tom was happy shooting from his familiar passenger side while I drove.
We made it back to the campground just fine. My nerves settled and we were grateful for the opportunity to explore and share our experience. We also knew that we would not be driving through Red Mountain Pass any time real soon. Thanks for joining us.
