Just a few more pictures from Telluride - remember that I forgot my camera so these were forwarded to me by Don Webster. These are from a drive and hike that we took up onto Wilson Mesa, southeast of the Historic District and in the Uncompahgre National Forest. You'd be hard-pressed to find anyplace with a more "Rocky Mountain High in Colorado" than this place!
Yep, those are the San Juan volcanics making those "stripes" in the snow up on Wilson Peak (elev. 14,106). They were erupted between 35 and 30 Ma in this part of the world.
Check out that old ranch. we walked down to it and it is still used but no one was around.
