Boreas Pass, CO
Boreas Pass straddles the Continental Divide between the ski town of Breckenridge to the north in Summit County and the old railroad town of Como to the south in Park County. Boreas Pass Road is a graveled National Scenic Byway and is especially spectacular in fall when the aspens are turning gold. At the top of the pass is the restored section house of the old railroad. There is a small parking area where you are allowed to camp but we opted to drive down the south side of the pass about a mile to a large pull-off at the side of the road across from the remains of an old mining town. The alpine views were tremendous and only two vehicles came by the entire time we were camped here.
