That looks like the Moki Dugway in Utah?

On the first try too!. Later on in the TV program they had a piece on Red Mountain Pass in CO. Been there too, but I don't have any photos. Anybody?

Not too far.

I think I'll just tell y'all because the odds of anyone from the forum having been there is really remote.

It's on a turn out on top of Engineer Pass North East of Silverton. Yes, it's a 4WD road, or more like a trail, 12,300 ft. if I remember correctly.

Here's another one that should be lots easier:

SteveH 12-16-2013 06:53 PM

OK, here's a hint, it's not too far from the previous picture I posted.

SteveH 12-17-2013 07:40 AM

OK, another hint, it's the best preserved of these in the state of Colorado.

#309, is it St. Elmo?

1 room schoolhouse?

SteveH 12-17-2013 10:07 AM

No to the above, but here's another hint....it's a ghost town.

Ag&Au 12-17-2013 10:23 AM

If you Google "best preserved ghost town Colorado" you get a bunch of links to St Elmo. See post 120. I'm sure that is subjective and I imagine other places may claim that also.

Yea, I guess so. I'm just going by what the locals told us and the literature said, but I guess they could be exaggerating. I will add that it is a mining ghost town, and on another 4WD road.

A further search leads me to believe your picture is of Animas Forks. https://www.blakecrouch.com/assets/images/mining.jpg

Very close, but no.

Ag&Au 12-17-2013 11:14 AM

Ok, my last guess is Ironton.

No, not even the right county, so here's a couple of more clues....it's in Henson County, and was a silver mining area.
