Day 13: Sylvian Pass

The corkscrew bridge - one drove under it, then over it to climb up the steep pass.

The corkscrew bridge – one drove under it, then over it to climb up the steep pass.

We pause to view the Corkscrew Bridge, a relic from earlier days of travel – from the lofty heights of the modern roadway that skirts between the steep ledges of the mountain peaks and the barren craves below.  Road crews were less careful here, and the bottom is littered with rock and stone tailings that have yet to be reclaimed by nature under the gaze of these majestic mountains.

Exiting the park, and head to Cody, passing towering mountains reminiscent of the hoodoos and cliffs of Utah, but composed of the ash from ancient volcanoes.
