Heading down towards the San Juan mountain range, just getting out of Gunnison National Forest (I think; hard to remember, a week later)

This is the Blue Mesa reservoir, very pretty place

So many wonderful plants grow in Colorado: sage, thistle, spiny asters, mountain daisies, yarrow, Indian paintbrush

This rope was hanging from a rock face in the above photo: high above this, more signs of climbing
