A landscape photographer's tour
Keith's travels in the Colorado Rockies - September-October 2008
Gunnison to Crested Butte and back via Ohio PassUp over one of the mountain passes that was closed when I was last here.
Crested Butte in the distance
and the view in 2006 (much colder)
A local attorney and property shop.
A large delivery of tea is underway from Xing Tea
Off up towards Kebler Pass.
Last time I was here (2006), this was as far as I could get, because of the snow.
No problem this time. The road carries on towards the McClure pass area, where we were at, the other day
We turned off towards Ohio Pass (also closed when I was here about 4 years ago)
This is the view back towards Gunnison as you cross the pass.
As you'd expect, lots of trees
yes, lots of them...
A really nice day to spend in the mountains
This is the road ahead
And another view
A popular pass-time, at least the marks will last for years...
The mountain below is entirely natural, it's called Castle Mountain - looks just like some ruins.
A distinctly LOTR look according to Karen :-)
Of course you don't have to drive miles up a mountain pass - you could always cycle it ;-)
Back in Gunnison we went out for some food, noticing that the flag had been lowered at the liquor store
This from last time - note the USMC flag. Karen wondered if there was any ceremony at sunset?
Motels often have notices up to entice passing visitors... ??
And the Sonic is deserted
