Two images from our recent weekend in Western Colorado, land of many beauties.
On our way back from Ouray to Telluride, the low gray sky kissing the green hills brought us to stop the car not far from the entrance of a ranch.
We stood for some time in the silence of a moment totally owned by nature.
Dallas Divide (el. 8,983 feet (2,738 m)) is a high mountain pass in the United States state of Colorado located on State Highway 62 about 12 miles (19 km) west of the town of Ridgway.
The pass is a saddle between the San Juan Mountains to the south and the Uncompahgre Plateau to the north... The pass takes its name from Dallas Creek which drains the basin on the north side of Mount Sneffels into the Uncompahgre River. [source]
This is my contribution to edition #134 of Black and White Wednesday - A Culinary Photography Event created by Susan of The Well-Seasoned Cook, now organized by Cinzia of Cindystar, and hosted this week by Haalo of Cook (almost) Anything at Least Once.
The photos were shot in color and then converted to sepia (Lightroom preset Sepia Tone).
My husband and some of his friends owned that ranch for many years. He built that big sign

Thank you for your comment, Helen. I have fond memories of that trip and you made me go back to them. What a special place. And of course, I love the sign :)

There is a small log house on the property and I spent manySummer Vacations there. There were 4 other partners in the ranch. One of my daughters got married there. We invited several people from Ridgeway and it was quite the festive event. A couple if the owners began to have problems with the altitude and it was sold early 90 ‘s. All of the owners were from Columbus OH
