Gore Pass

0

This is a rather remote stretch of road that winds through scenic high country, mostly high-altitude sagebrush steppe and lodgepole and spruce-fir forest. Look for pronghorn, mule deer, and the occasional elk. Expect Mountain Bluebird and Brewer’s Blackbird in open areas. In summer, Pass Creek just northeast of Gore Pass supports a breeding population of Veery.
