Colorado Gold Panoramic

Mnt. Sneffels, San Juan Mnt Range,Colorado

My favorite view in Colorado is the Dallas Divide a high mountain pass located between State Hwy 62 about 12 miles west of the town of Ridgway. I hike up to this location every year during the Fall season in October to photograph it. The pass is a saddle between the San Juan Mountains . The pass takes its name from Dallas Creek which drains the basin on the north side of Mount Sneffels into the Uncompahgre River. The divide's namesake is George M. Dallas, 11th Vice President of the United States.
