Back Roads Only

A 35 mile drive on an old gravel road beside the Colorado River is breathtakingly beautiful.  Rather than trying to describe it, just look at the photos.   Some call this the "Don't Be In A Hurry Road" running through Gore Canyon and valleys, sparsely dotted with a few historic ranches.  A "real" cowboy was rounding up an escaped cow too.  Not fun for him but an authentic view for us.

Dramatic is not over stating the surroundings.   Take a look.....and, oh, the wild yellow roses blooming this time of year. And picnicking in Hot Sulphur Springs, and the Arapaho Wildlife Preserve...  What a day!
