Colors - FS Rd 566
September 29, 2006
the colors were going fast this week going and coming from work at Mesa
Verde. We had to go for it soon or miss the display. We took Forest
Service road 566 up into the La Plata mountains from Echo Basin Road.
This is an area we want to venture for the early birds coming through
to the 6th
Annual Ouray FSJ Invasion. We got up a little over 10,000 feet and
saw plenty of colors. The aspens will probably be done shedding in a
few days. The most spectacular view of the aspens was while coming back
down the loop. A beautiful day for a nice ride to the mountains. Enjoy!
