    Guanella Pass

    Georgetown, from the Guanella Pass

    When you're in Georgetown, go to the end of Rose Street and you'll see the sign for Guanella Pass. This 22-mile road takes you from Georgetown to Grant; I believe half of it is gravel, and it takes about an hour to travel it, so although it looks like a shortcut, it really isn't.

    I drove a couple of miles on the road, just high enough to take this picture of Georgetown from a great vantage point, but the part I was on was fairly rugged. I can see why it would take an hour to drive it.

    on the main street of Silver Plume

    The old mining city of Silver Plume is a few miles away from Georgetown.
    What is interesting about this town is that it has not been renovated. The streets are not paved and there are no trendy boutiques along the streets and no restaurants or hotels.

    It's easy to imagine what life was like in the 1800's in this small mining town.
