Hagerman Pass, a photo by bad9brad on Flickr.
I took the girls hiking up above Turquoise Lake west of Leadville on Sunday. We hiked part of the old Colorado Midland Railroad grade leading up to Hagerman Tunnel, the highest-altitude tunnel ever built. Sadly, I’m not in good enough shape to hike all the way to the tunnel yet but we did put in 3.5 miles of 11,300-foot hiking. I was exhausted and the dogs were happy.
