Since Amanda had to work today, it was up to me to figure out what I was going to do. While having breakfast this morning, I figured I would head up on the Uncompahgre Plateau to explore a few roads I haven’t been on yet. I started out on Divide Road and made a large loop all the way back home. Here’s a few pictures from my day.
Stopped in a large grove of aspens on Campbell Point
Coming down the other side of the plateau, there were great views of the La Sal Mountains
Drove through a historic uranium mining area…..I will have to spend more time here in the future
Near Mesa Creek
Found a few petroglyphs
After reaching the highway again on the other side of the plateau, I made a quick detour into Sinbad Valley before heading home.
Headed up Salt Creek Canyon to Sinbad Valley
Great views in Sinbad Valley all around
Headed back out Salt Creek Canyon
