Up on the Uncompahgre

Sunday, July 25, 2010

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

After reaching the highway again on the other side of the plateau, I made a quick detour into Sinbad Valley before heading home.
