It seems whenever we take a trip, I wind up with these random photos that are not really connected to any specific event. And yet, I took the pictures because I saw something interesting. That’s what this post is about.
This summer, we attended a Mini Cooper meetup event called Minis in the Mountains in Salida, CO. I blogged about it here, here, and here. When the event was over we headed west on Highway 50 in southern Colorado.
The road rose out of Salida’s 7000 foot elevation to 11,230 ft. How did I know that? I discovered that the compass app on my phone tells the elevation as well! I had a lot of fun with this app during this latter part of the trip.
And finally, there is this photo:
I took this picture because I found the craggy mountain face fascinating. The Gunnison River, there in the foreground, has three dams on it creating three lakes: Blue Mesa Reservoir, Morrow Point Reservoir, and Crystal Reservoir. Unless you happen to see the dam, it’s really hard to tell where one lake ends and the next begins. In any case, this body of water was our constant companion for miles and miles.
Whew! I think I’ve finally said all that I want about our Colorado trip!
