(Uravan to Naturita CO)
I continued south on the Unaweep Scenic Byway along the western edge of Colorado. At a certain point, the San Miguel River entered the Dolores River which itself veered westward. The road then paralleled the San Miguel.
There was a parking area and a short trail next to the San Miguel River, near to where the Tabeguache Creek emptied into it. Wasn’t much to see as dense undergrowth blocked much of the view. I was disappointed about not finding other photo opportunities along the river.
I stopped in Naturita for lunch at a local restaurant which was pretty good. The plan was to camp by the river. But, after a long drive to a free boondocking area, I found all spots were occupied. So, I backtracked and headed toward my next destination.
Camp: BLM-Unaweep Divide boondock
