Near my home in Ridgway Colorado. Took this trail in late September.
The San Juan Mountain Range
In the John Wayne movie True Grit, filmed here in Ridgway, this was the Ross place.
One road goes up and into Telluride, the other to Sawpit. I took the one to Telluride.
You drive through some tree groves as the road climbs to over 10,000ft
And up through pine forests.
Several places to pull off the road and enjoy the scenery
Aspen groves heading down
On top of the world
End of the road. A fun easy drive.
