On June 7th my sister and I drove across Colorado with the goal of visiting Dinosaur National Monument the next day. We started our morning in Canyon City and visited the Royal Gorge first thing in the morning and then proceeded to drive across Colorado on our epic road trip 2017. Eventually I'll post road trips from 2014-16!
I stopped to take a few shots of the Arkansas River which was flowing into the Royal Gorge. We were traveling from the Royal Gorge to Salida on the first leg of our journey to Grand Junction.
We were heading towards Monarch Pass...
Snow covered mountains; I think so!
Driving across the country in our tiny car...
So we continued...
This is the area between Gunnison and Montrose, we didn't go through Montrose though, we continued north to Hotchkiss. This is Curecanti National Recreation Area which is AMAZING.
This area is the Dillon Pinnacles.
So I believe this is part of The Black Canyon of the Gunnison, but it is also Curecanti National Recreation Area.
Incredibly beautiful, I had to stop multiple times to take photos!
I believe I've been so far behind with posting images I didn't know where to start. Maybe I can begin to work on this blog again.
I really want to go back !
But we continued on...
The scenic route was worth the time!
