(Whitewater to Gateway CO)
Unaweep Scenic Byway goes along the western edge of Colorado. This was a road I had wanted to drive for a long time. It travelled through a rugged landscape.
Towering cliffs, massive buttes, and interesting rock formations made for plenty of dramatic photos. I suppose that some of these had names. It really didn’t matter though; as I was still enchanted.
I especially liked the pointed rock formation, and the huge boulder sitting alone. The big rock stood a goodly distance from the cliff. So, I wondered how it got there.
A map I downloaded showed numerous stops to explore. It looked like a long and slow adventure. So, I decided to boondock camp a few miles off the highway in the Dominguez-Escalante NCA.
