"Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one's lifetime"-MARK TWAIN

Tin Cup

Our goal for today was a journey over Tin Cup Pass between the old mining towns of St. Elmo and Tin Cup.  We had to travel to St. Elmo to begin the 4-wheel ride up to the pass.  The town looked much the same as it did three years ago.  Old buildings, beginning to look their age.
