Early in the week I felt quite compelled
to get out of my house and I wound up driving into Chalk Creek Canyon near the Mt. Princeton Hot Springs.
As I've done in the past (C.R. 328), I merely pulled over at a scenic spot and started taking pictures.
This time I was at Chaffee County Road 162 and County Road 162G,
which is somewhere between the Mt. Princeton Hot Springs and the Alpine Reservoir.
I snapped a couple of shots of the Chalk Cliffs at this particular spot.
After doing some reading about it, the Chalk Cliffs, formed by a soft rock
called "kaolinite", is a geological indication that hot springs are in the area.
