Leadville & The Grill

Leadville was a good rest from the previous days’ travels and a snowy Independence Pass. It was also a chance to meet up with our friend Steve who had guided us through Chinaman Gulch in his FJ-62 the previous year. Our sacred watering hole in Leadville is The Grill Bar & Mexican Food. This trip we managed to keep the tequila shots to a minimum. The storm brewing on Massive and Elbert provided a fine backdrop for sitting on the cantina’s back patio. We would have had great difficulty had we attempted Pearl Pass any later.
