Similar to my visit to the
Chalk Cliffs, I decided to do a
spontaneous drive and wound up on Chaffee County Road 328, just west
of Rodeo Road outside of Buena Vista, Colorado.
It was a bright and sunny day with the temperature in the upper 40's. Below are
the scenic Colorado pictures I took, and I will admit, I did not do much walking
around or hiking for these. I merely stood in one general spot and did a "360" of the views.
Friends, if you live in the Arkansas Valley, I would really urge you to be grateful
for all the amazing mountain scenery we are blessed with. Last month I got a
really nice picture of Mt. Yale (photo directly below) and was just in awe.
County Road 328, by the way, is a lonely dirt road southwest of the town
of Buena Vista. From County Road 306, take Rodeo Road south out of town as though
you were traveling to the Mt. Princeton Hot Springs or Frontier Ranch.
