“Most Beautiful Place!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2013

This is the most beautiful place to go while in Gunnison area. Some of the roads are narrow and very very bumpy so be aware of this if you are going up to the mountains. Alot of wildlife to see and many rocks to collect.

“wow”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2013

we drove through this forest on a 30 mile dirt road (I think this is the one). Although scary, the scenery was awesome. Be sure you have plenty of fuel before making this journey.

“West Elk Loop”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 23, 2013

Whether by auto or motorcycle, get yourself on this loop through the mountains and canyon. You can start in Gunnison, and travel the bigger outside loop up through Aspen, then onto Hwy 192 to the interior. The panoramic views are outstanding, with literally hundreds of picture moments waiting to happen. It's a whole day affair, so start early!

“Love the views”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 17, 2013

We love the Gunnison area! Our favorite thing is to drive and look for wildlife. Never disappointed! Wish we could spend more time but not sure we would ever have enough.

“Castles on Ohio Creek Rd”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 11, 2012

Ohio and Kebler Passes are a yearly trek for me in the fall for the Aspens. Even with the drought this year, the colors were fabulous ! I also got to see snow on the peaks alongside the Castles for the first time. Breathtaking ! John Denver's lyric Almost heaven West Virginia should have been Colorado. Oh well, this is a true Rocky Mountain High destination. Around every bend you will say WOW !
