Rollins Pass and Moffat Tunnel

This is a dump from Google Earth and shows the difference between the two routes. The elevation profile shows the overall trend of the grade (numbers about the slope percentage should be disregarded as inaccurate). The summit at Corona also is where the green border line which comes in horizontally from the upper right of the map, can be seen crossing the railroad for the fourth time and then curving around to the north.
There are many Panoramio photos taken along the route and a number of points of interest. These will be expounded upon in a future article when this map will be presented as a full Google Map, allowing a more detailed examination of its various features.
