  • Silver Creek Canyon

    This view of Silver Creek Canyon is taken from the byway, a mile or so east of Ebbetts Pass. After winding through dense forest and through granite formations which come right to the edge of the road, the view suddenly opens to this grande vista. Because there are no guardrails in this area, it is often referred to as the "white knuckle zone" by local residents.
