Winter snows begins to fade in late spring and Colorado's mountain passes are reopened. Spring's wildflowers cover a field at the base of Ophir Pass. This popular shortcut connects the towns of Silverton and Telluride, snaking between the two Lookout Peaks. The Ophir Pass Road, adjacent the Continental Divide is surrounded by numerous Colorado 14,000 foot high peaks, shooting-up out of the San Juan National Forest.
