Wednesday July 16th 2014 the air was crisp, the smiles were plenty and the towering Rocky Mountain high country begged to be explored. We eagerly set up our Discount Tire display area and checked over our vehicles.





With our team working together, we managed to finish our event preparations early enough to get in an afternoon trail ride near Silverton, CO. The views above the tree line seem to have no ending and you never know what you may find around the next corner.





During this ride we explored some remnants of an old mine and I couldn’t help but wonder what it would have been like to work in it once upon a time.





After looping back toward town, we headed to the Twin Peaks Lodge to kick off the event with a festive Discount Tire welcome party. The party was hopping, the food was tasty and all of our friends were full of smiles.

That's Ouray County Road 14, which starts close to where Ophir meets 550. It's a nice easy drive and highly recommended if you have an extra hour or two.

Ferby, unfortunately I was not on that ride so no photos. We just had one photo guy on the trip.


Woodsman, you are correct. It is almost across the street from Ophir. We were out free wheeling and found it. It sure does gain elevation in a hurry.

We had a blast on this short trail.
