Three days and a thousand miles and I'm finally moving up into Colorado.
I wanted to see some of the area before I settled in to camp.
I ran 84 up into Pagosa Springs then took 160 up to South Fork.
Much of the land in this area is National Forest. Also because of the mining, there are roads everywhere.
A view of Treasure Falls
And just across the road.
I decided I should start getting acclimated, so I took a walk up to see the falls.
I saw quite a bit of this the next few days.
At South Fork, I took 149 up past Lake City.
Lots of abandoned mine structures.
Heading over towards Montrose and decided I would take a shortcut. First dirt in Colorado.
Before I headed out here I asked if there were particular roads I should be sure and hit. I was told that any road west of I25 would be worth taking. This one was proving that to be true.
My first camping spot in Ridgeway State Park.
Unfortunately I could only get a spot for two days. This was a nice camp and could have worked for most of the week.
Not a bad view.
Next day.... how about a pass or two??
