A landscape photographer's tour
Keith's travels in the Colorado Rockies - September-October 2008
Durango to Gunnison via CreedeTravelling East along US160 and then up CO149 through Creede and Lake City to Gunnison
Clear blue skies are not usually my favourite photographic conditions, but they made for a a nice journey today.
Heading east out of Durango along US160 is a nice journey. The picture below is along Wolf Creek, heading towards the pass.
The rocks are volcanic in this area, giving this distinctive weathering style.
The map shows the area we covered today.

In fact, the lump of rock to the right of the picture above is right in the middle of the one below.
Still many aspens holding on to their leaves
There is no shortage of helpful road signs in the US - we were wondering why the road vanished into the dark hole in the rocks.
We stopped off in Creede for lunch.
I can certainly recommend the Cafe Ole - best BLT sandwich I've had for a long while :-|)
Afterwards we headed off towards Gunnison
Whilst I like the colours, I'd prefer to see lots of interesting cloud for black and white shots
This was a similar view last time I was going along this road
The Gunnison Sonic is being rebuilt
This is what it looked like last time I was here (note more interesting clouds too!)
Anyway, I just fancied a good cup of tea, and was able to get one at a local coffee shop.
And in a bit of experimentation, it seems that the GX200 really does focus down to 1cm (top is from Karen's fizzy drink :-)
We're staying in Gunnison for a couple of days
