San Juan Skyway

San Juan Mts AU11-120

In the last two days I have finished driving the entire San Juan Skyway loop, one of the most scenic drives on the planet, as it winds among huge, variously hued mountains, which, at this time of the year, are bursting with fall color:

There are ten mountains in the San Juan range reaching above 14,000 feet. The larger mountains tend to have a hulking, grayish-blue hue, sometimes taking on a reddish-orange hue.
