Engineer Pass 4x4

Engineer Pass connects Lake City with Ouray (and Silverton via Animas Forks).  Combined with Cinnamon Pass it's called the Alpine Loop.  

Zena and I climbed Handies Peak in the morning and then set out to cross Engineer Pass on the way back to Lake City and then Denver.   The views were amazing, but the terrain was actually much easier than I expected.  It was really steep and narrow in sections and it definitely required a high clearance 4x4, but it wasn't all that bad.  I ended up playing roulette with a Land Rover on a really narrow section, but otherwise I felt relatively comfortable on it.

The ARB Old Man Emu suspension lift on the 4Runner paid off today.
