Cuchara Pass – Purgatoire River

Cuchara Pass – Purgatoire River

Yesterday, we stayed close to home and took a beautiful, winding drive up over Cuchara Pass and back to La Veta.  We wandered off onto the road to the North Fork of the Purgatoire River, then continued on the Highway of Legends to Trinidad.  On our way back, we ended up on some random road, called “21.6 Rd” – a beautiful short cut off of Highway 12, just East of Stonewall, which takes you up near North Lake.  We missed the peak colors in this area, but there was still so much to be seen!
