Highway 82 Tunnel Ice

Just east of the tunnel is this area where the water seeps all year.  It is wet all summer, but forms these spectacular icecicles in the winter.  I was the passenger in the car as I snapped this, so it is a titch out of focus.

This was coming back down the highway and you can see the tunnel from here.

A bit closer to the tunnel.  The climate changes dramatically as you pass through the tunnel and your elevation climbs to aprox. 6,500 feet.

  1. Folks around here call the huge boulder below the white cross "Lincoln's Chair". There have been times in the winter that I traveled thru the Tunnel and it would be raining on the south end, but snowing on the north end as you exited the tunnel.
