The sun was still shining brightly, albeit from a low angle, after dinner. So, I hopped on the bike around 6:15 pm and returned around 7:45 pm, just as it was starting to get dark. I thought I’d take the various branches of Ouray County Road 8. Right now it’s only clear up to Vista Point, and the upper part is pretty rutted—great way to catch a wheel!
The track shows County Road 8 from its western intersection with US Highway 550, to its current end at Vista Point. County Road 8A goes to the north and ends at the boundary with Billy Creek State Wildlife Area. County Road 8B juts south past some well-kept ranches. And, here are more pictures:
A nice way to spend an evening, don’t you think?
