I had an assignment out in Delta, Colorado a week or so ago and was encouraged to take a route back to Denver that brought me over McClure Pass. It seemed a little late for high-country color, but I don't get out to the western slope much so I figured, why not?!
I don't make a lot of smart decisions in my life, but I'm going to count this one among those lonely few. Absolutely breathtaking.
I don't make enough time to just get out an take in the beauty of this state...and there's sooooooo much of it. It's trips like this that I need to remind me to stop being such a lazy knucklehead and GET OUT THERE!
