Dead Horse Gap
Dead Horse Gap, aptly named. Could also get away with a name like Dead Tree Gap. The red poles alongside the road serve a two fold purpose. One, when the road is under snow, you know where both the road and certain death are. Two, to alert you that you are travelling through an avalanche area - dont dawdle - keep going or take your chances.
Look closely, regeneration is underway. Supposedly there is a car park and a walking track here, but we didnt see it, and so pushed on.
We spied this colourful wild flower elsewhere. I needed to see some colour after re-visiting Dead Horse Gap, thought you would enjoy it too.
