Along the San Miguel River, Colorado

Well this is much nicer.  
We are at 7100' in elevation and 20 degrees cooler than before, now at 75 degrees.
This area is located between Telluride and the Utah border on Highway 145.

Wonderful scenery.

There are three more camp areas to the west.
We may stay at them too.
Notice the fly trapped behind the glass panel. 

You can imagine my surprise finding this right between us and the river only 20 feet away.

My guess it was abandoned long ago and over the years the river has filled it in all around with sediment at high water periods.  There's no getting this car out.

 I couldn't find any identifying markings or badges on it,
but it looks like a Hudson so I'll go with that.

And in the trunk a geocache. 
That makes about four I have found now only by accident.

Did you look inside the geocache?

I think it's a gangster's getaway car.
