Photographer's Note

After booking into our hotel in Ouray, we drove to Ridgway and then to the Dallas Divide to catch the last of the light on the San Juan Mountains, and in particular Mount Sneffels. Known as the “Queen of the San Juans” , Mount Sneffels is the second highest of the San Juan peaks (Uncompahgre Peak is the highest).

This view has also featured in several Westerns including “How the West was Won,” and more notably, in “True Grit”. Dallas Divide, Log Hill Mesa and Owl Creek Pass are the best places to see Mount Sneffels.

After the sun went down John & Joanne took us to an excellent Mexican restaurant in Ridgway for dinner.

I zoomed right in for this one, but there is a wide view in the WS
