(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.
Camp: BLM-Unaweep Divide boondock
Scene: Cliffs, buttes, rock formations
Another fantastic posting. Would I likely be able to take my trailer to many of the camping spots you refer to. It is a 24 foot built for off road. It is the same old trailer since I started full timing in 2007. You are putting a strong urge into me for when my eyes heal.
I have seen your rig. For many of the boondocking spots, yes you can. But, for some I would say no. Drop me an eMail when you are going somewhere, and I’ll give you my opinion.
Thank you. I appreciate the correct info you always give out.
Great colors !
Glad you like the photos.
Interesting geology! All the rocks look laid down flat, and then there’s the angling below the pointed rock. Something happened here!!
Or, probably a lot happened. Makes for great scenery.
