June 12, 2012 - I drove on Chaffee County Road 101,
located east of Salida
and close to the Fremont County border.
I just wanted to drive on a road I had never been on before and snapped some photos.

U.S. Highway 50, traveling east, as one leaves Salida. This is the same spot
where I followed Brian, a man who was biking across America months ago.
Onto Chaffee County Road 101.
Driving on the dirt road.
Pretty greenery and hills.
At about one mile, the road crosses into Fremont County.
435 acres are for sale in this scenic and peaceful area.
Facing north. Beautiful blue sky and mountains.
Continuing, I came closer to these mountains that are part of the Sangre De Cristo Mountain Range.
The road continues beyond the cattle guard. I stopped here and turned back.
