Next morning we decide to drive over the high Rockies. We head out early in the sunshine. Southwest Colorado has some amazing vistas and high mountain peaks.
Well, not the really the highest Rockies. The route I wanted to take was highway 550 from Durango to Montrose thorugh Ouray, Colorado which would put us on 11,000 ft pass.
|Rocky Mountain High!|
Before Montrose, we head up another pass to Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park.

We arrive before lunch. Nice days drive.
