Jeeped this one as part of the Alpine Loop. Cool ghost town. I always recommend people not take stock 4x4 vehicles on these mountain passes; rent a proper Jeep or ATV. But if you think you can do it, don't let me stop you. I just think it's a bad idea. Definitely no passenger cars....that's just plain dumb.

Elevation: 11,200'. Quite a bustling community in the1880's. Became a ghost town in the 1920's. Many buildings still standing today.
