Description:  The “Great Wall of Woodland Park” This is a road cut when entering Woodland Park from East Hwy 24. A very interesting color and erosional pattern makes this a photogenic section of Road.  It often has quite nice cloud shadow mottling. The amazing “ghost” car in the detail gives a good idea of scale.

Description:  Really stellar shot of road with Pike Peak in the distance. Very little traffic on this road except at mine shift changes.    YOUR CAR HERE!   The reverse is a large area suitable for parking. NOTE: This is the first time a Camera Map has been approximate: the Mine has moved roads around and Google just hasn’t figured that out yet.
