This photo was taken just as the sun was beginning to rise upon Engineer Pass. We had set up our Oliver travel trailer at an old ghost town above Silverton Colorado. Leaving our base camp OLLIE at 4:30 a.m. in the dark we started our climb up through the next ghost town and continued upward towards the summit to view that very special sunrise at elevation. As evidenced by the photo, we are well above the timber line, the alpine tundra zone and are well up into the fractured rock zone.
The climb up the old bulldozer blade width track across the face of the mountain zig-zagged back and forth in it’s very steep ascent.
