“Interesting formations”
Reviewed August 9, 2012

For folks driving along U.S. 50 in Colorado, these formations (remnants of a big volcanic mud flow), on the north side of Blue Mesa Reservoir just west of a bridge, are worth a glance through the car window, and are even more interesting up close. It's worth a stop at the rest area on the north side of the bridge and a short hike to get that closer look. I believe that photos (from U.S. 50 on the west side of the lake, if you prefer to grab a shot or two and run) are best in morning light on a sunny day, which is when the accompanying one was taken.
