6. 06hermit pass, sangre de cristo mountain range
ever since i got my topo map of colorado i've wanted to check out the sangre de cristo mountains. they stick out on a map full mountains because they are high and narrow. the hermit pass summit is like being on the top of a mountain spine. you can see both ways forever.
these two car shots are from the west, just up from the great sand dunes
this is where i first saw marmots and didnt know what they were
i didnt feel like i was in colorado up here
one of the many horseshoe lakes
