Now near Buena Vista, CO

 Last evening's sunset colors:

I drove the VRRV, with Scarlett on the trailer, out of the Tarryall Dispersed Camping area just shy of 8AM.

I took the County Road 56 exit and boy that was a mistake!  The road was one long wash boarded dirt road all the way to the US285 highway!  Note to self, use CR 77 next time.

There was some construction going on which caused everyone headed to Buena Vista on US 285 to detour to US24 for a bit.  Still, made good time and no waiting at the propane reseller so I got to my desired camping spot by 10AM.

I left the VRRV holding down the spot and unloaded Yagi, my TW200, to recon the other boondocking sites nearby.  Sadly, none were better than the one I had already grabbed and the view from the initial site was the best.

Some hints of Fall Coloration in the Collegiate Peaks

My view of the peaks from my VRRV's window

As you can see, it was an overcast afternoon and it kind of tried to rain but no real precipitation.  

The plan is to hang out here a few days, check out both Cottonwood and Independence Passes and their respective Fall Colors.

Really nice view from your campsite!

I love Cottonwood Pass. Looking forward to your photographs from the passes.

RichardM, the view makes up for the site being next to a dirt bike trail entrance I suppose, at least it's too narrow for side x sides and larger.

I'll try to not disappoint OZ.
