Okay and somewhere up way way way WAY up on the side of a cliff, I noticed a little cabin (or maybe two small structures). Here's the overall pic (tiny brown dot in the middle)…

Wonder how anyone would get up there! 🙂

We stopped and took a picture at the Red Mountain Pass summit (11,018 feet):

Behind us is the Hillside Cemetery which we fully plan to explore.

And now, more work!
