Dallas Divide was a high point on the old Rio Grande Southern Railroad. The rail line had to climb this pass to get from Telluride and Placerville area to get to Ridgeway and Ouray which was its final destination. The divide is actually one of the lower passes in Colorado at only 8970 feet in elevation.
This view is of the San Juan Mountains from the park like setting of the Divide. Still not quite fall at the lower elevations.
