West or Bust Day 5

June 5, Friday

FINALLY we've made it to the real west.

Heading into the mountains of Colorado

Royal gorge

It's really deep

A kind man offered to take our picture

Then someone else showed up and now we're 4

The Arkansas river is a long way from home

White water farther up


A calm section

Everything is so green deep in the mountains

The continental divide at this pass, the highest so far at 11 312 ft


Still quite a bit of snow here

Looking straight down the dam wall

Up the canyon farther

The rain really started around Montrose

Coming into Ouray (U-ray)

Yes, we ARE interested, actually - perfect day for hot springs

The public outdoor hot springs - there were several pools of different temperatures

This is the hottest pool - 104'.

We stayed in the Twin Peaks lodge (not in this picture)

Can you see Ouray?

The breakfast room at the lodge
