Beautiful shots from the road. I love mountains and you captured them very well.


Your trip was wonderful ! I like a lot these long roads is so beautiful landscapes !


We have done this trip looooong ago, but the landscape hasn't changed ! Beautiful !


love the way that sign points to the mountain


We have traveled that highway too but never while towing our Fifth Wheel. No way could I do that. But that whole area is so incredibly beautiful. We especially like the little town of Ouray.

Sallie, "Million dollar" shots from your trip. Such beautiful country you traveled through. Hard to ever get any better scenery that those beautiful mountains in Colorado. Sounds like you had a wonderful time--I think your "fellow bloggers" are all envious ( I know I am)! Take care and have a great weekend. Mickie :)
