Detour By Red Cliff, Colorado
Still on Rt. 24, just after the modern "ghost town" at Notch Mountain,...
...there was a construction area at the bridge over Red Cliff.
Instead of waiting to continue on Rt. 24, I took the quite breathtaking detour around the cliff that names the town.
There I found this quite unique chalet.
As I made a few turns, and turn arounds, I found myself along this stream.
There were the aspens, ...
and vivid orange lichen (I think - Mr. Hertzler would know!),
all found in this one out of the way spot.
The road less traveled was a treasure.
