The Moffat Road ends on the east side just before the Needle's Eye Tunnel, part of the former Denver & Salt Lake Railway near Rollinsville, Colorado. This railroad was in operation from 1903 to 1928 crossing over Rollins Pass & being the highest railroad in North America at the time before the Moffat Tunnel was completed. It is only a few hundred feet in length & one can see all to the other side easily, it has recently been barricated after a ceiling rockfall injured a firefighter in 1990. Views of the Moffat Road circling around below w/ Jenny Lake as well as distant snow-dusted 13er James Peak.
The United States is one of the most diverse countries on earth, jam packed full of amazing sights from St. Patrick's cathedral in New York to Mount Hollywood California.The Northeast region is where it all started. Thirteen British colonies fought the American Revolution from here and won their independence in the first successful colonial rebellion in history. Take a look at these rolling hills carpeted with foliage along the Hudson river here, north of New York City.The American south is known for its polite people and slow pace of life. Probably they move slowly because it's so hot. Southerners tend not to trust people from "up north" because they talk too fast. Here's a cemetery in Georgia where you can find graves of soldiers from the Civil War.The West Coast is sort of like another country that exists to make the east coast jealous. California is full of nothing but grizzly old miners digging for gold, a few gangster rappers, and then actors. That is to say, the West Coast functions as the imagination of the US, like a weird little brother who teases everybody then gets famous for making freaky art.The central part of the country is flat farmland all the way over to the Rocky Mountains. Up in the northwest corner you can find creative people in places like Portland and Seattle, along with awesome snowboarding and good beer. Text by Steve Smith.
