Roads Less Traveled In Fremont County, Colorado

Temple Canyon Park, Texas Creek and Cotopaxi, Highway 9 North - November 14, 2003

Temple Canyon Park, CO I had a free afternoon and it was one of those days where I had to get out of the house. From Manitou Springs, I drive south toward Canon City and ventured on a few roads less traveled.

    Looking back north, the skies were very clear ...
    ... yet looking south, a storm fogged up the Sangre de Cristo range.
