We took a four hour guided tour on side-by-side ATV's. Our guide was Ed and he knows the mountains around Silverton. It was raining when we started out, but Ed navigated us to some blue sky and then the weather cleared for the rest of the trip. Unbelievable sights and insights into the history of the area. We always felt safe as our guide would instruct us when to use 4x, high, or low so that we got maximum enjoyment out of our four hour tour. We really got a feel for the peaks around Silverton as we were over California Pass, 12,930 feet.
