Photographer's Note

The Chamber of Commerce gives away a whole bunch of useful information like „Mountain Illness + Acclimatization“ but you can also pick a nice booklet on „Colorado’s Scenic and Historic Byways“ – offering a handful of tips and ideas you may not find in your travel guides. When I saw No. 4 “Unaweep/Tabeguache” in this booklet I knew this was the one for us. It says things like […] the ageless desert region offers sheer scenic wonder – striated cliffs towering a thousand feet overhead, raging streams, and boundless skies […]

Also taken from this booklet:
Lengths: 133 miles
Driving time: 3 hours
Special considerations: Bring full tank of gas, food, and water, long intervals between service stops
etc. etc.

No. 4 starts in Whitewater (near Grand Junction) ending in Placerville (or the other way around of course).

I don’t know how you handle long driving. We were listening to some really good music and if I think about it, I still have to laugh, and I really wonder how it looked seeing the two Swiss sitting in the car really being into their music … must have looked like a session of Muppet Show :)

This picture is another one of “these” photo stops … well I know you might have found out yourself :)
