We will remember this road traveled for a very long time. We were en route to Carbondale from Gunnison. We decided to take Hwy 50 to 92 and then onto 133. We were hoping the road would be scenic. It was beyond scenic. The interplay of weather, canyons, wild rivers, waterfalls, spring flower and more made the full day's drive uber special.
There are few pullouts along the route we chose. But one that was very nice was Pioneer point at the start of Hwy 92. Oh my!! There was an actual parking lot and three lookout points. I went right this time. Tom went left and then we switched. We also took in the middle. This area would be on the east end of Black Canyon. Our estimated travel time took a real dive with this stop.
We arrived at the Crystal River KOA Resort and we parked right next to the Crystal River. Wonderful sound to sleep by! The next day we decided to head back south on Hwy 133 to Redstone and Marble, stopping along the way to get photos left behind the day before. It is much easier to pull out when in the car than in Mellie.
Thanks for joining us. We are happy you are along for the trip.
