Engineer Pass Road

(nr Lake City CO)
From my camp on Henson Creek, I walked and biked up and down Engineer Pass Rd, and took photos as I was exploring. The scenes were varied and mostly beautiful. These are some of the things I saw.

Engineer Pass Road – Snowden Cabin

Across the road, a short way into the forest and up a steep hill, was found the Pike Snowden Cabin, built in the 1800s, by an eccentric miner. Next to it, was a nice meadow used by folks for camping or having a picnic.

Cascades along Henson Creek

A cliff poking out of the tall pines made an impressive site. Cascades flowing into Henson Creek was also exciting to see and hear. Further up the road, was a pretty scene of the creek beneath the towering 14,000 ft plus snowy peaks.

I caught a glimpse of Tardis between the trees, in the distance, as I was pushing through the brush along the edge of Henson Creek. Beautiful nature and the clear, cool, mountain air made for pleasant meandering.

    Wonderful photos, Pleinguy. I guess the elevation was too high for Fall colors yet. I’d like to see your plein air paintings done of these places you’re sharing with us.

    Happy painting!

      Thanks Aliye. My visit there was in late June, so no Fall colors yet. The posts are a good 3 or 4 months behind from when they actually occurred.
