Lobo Overlook, Colorado

If you drive over Wolf Creek Pass in Colorado, you’ll see a small dirt road heading north, close to the ski area.  Take that maybe 3 miles, but don’t be afraid of heights, it is a small and narrow road with big drop offs.  But once you get to the top you will be rewarded with terrific views, in all directions.  And it was such a great day, too!

Here are some of the pictures we took at the top overlook.  Although I have processed these images some, the deep dark sky is mainly due to the elevation: around 11,600 ft.

Pagosa Springs is most known as a tourist draw, with a really elaborate hot springs (hence the name).   Yesterday we enjoyed the Springs with its 17 pools, all different temperatures (from 85 to 111 degrees).  Today, we drove to the mountains but were about 2 weeks to early for colors.  But it was a great drive, and we ended at Treasure Falls.
