Black Bear Pass and Bridal Veil Falls

I think I have posted a photo very similar to this one in the past, but this is the view of the zig-zagging road we descended for the Telluride side of Black Bear Pass and Bridal Veil Falls last week. Yes, it is true there is a family that lives in the power station house during the summer! Last year they had a couple of horses behind the house and even a trampoline for the kids.

By the way, I took this as we drove over our other major trail, Imogene Pass, which is a 16 mile trip from Telluride to Ouray. It was cloudy and rainy, but I got a few decent photos!

What a pretty little spot of the world that you can call 'yours.'

You can really see those switchbacks when you enlarge the picture Lisa! It turned out great even in the cloudy rainy weather.

Gotta love those Colorado Rockies!

I like this particularly because it gives context to Bridal Falls. Nice job.

Cloudy and rainy didn't hurt your photos...sometimes that weather makes for better photos as there's not so much contrast...

This is beautiful and one gets a sense of how high up you are by those thin strands in the valley which I presume are roads.

That is glorious. You could lose all my island in there.
