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:  DIFFICULT ACCESS   This is one of those sights worth the hike.  Ample parking at the Crags campground- but expect to lug your gear 600 yards to get were this pan was taken:  Farther to get closer. A popular climbing spot. It is nearly universally mis pronounced locally as the: Craigs. I don’t know who this Craig is (or was)

Detail Bridge:


Description:  Perhaps my favorite spot on 11 mile canyon road. You pass through a keyhole (Detail1) and then almost directly over an iron trestle bridge. Below you passes the South Platte River= running wild through a deep rock canyon. Good place to fish too, I hear. Detail 2 is off the road to the North giving a better view of the bridge and gorgeous waters.
