Scenic Byway


Highway 160 
Between Gunnison and Pagosa Springs
Colorado

This reminded me of the entrance into Yosemite Valley


You will notice that most of these photos were taken while driving. 
There were just not many places to pull over.



Their bridge driveway to their home.





Here you can really see how all the pines are dead, probably that pine beetle infestation.


We were able stop at the summit.
Beans was onto something right away.


Scene from the summit. 


Coming down the other side from the summit.
What a beautiful place to live...except in winter.

  1. Beautifyl country. That name at the pass rang a little bell somewhere in the back of my mind. I've got it now - Geology Exam - Slumgullion Gulch, earthslide. I must have had that fact lodged in my brain for 50 years!

  2. It looks very pretty, nice to see all those empty roads, we rarely see that here anymore in our crowded country.

  3. Such gorgeous colours in the faraway hills, and isn't Slumgullion a wonderful name?
