From Owl Creek Pass   Montrose, Colorado

Owl Creek Pass is a 42 mile mountain pass road that runs from
Ridgeway, CO to Blue Mesa reservoir near Gunnison, CO. The road is an
1885 cattle drive trail that tops out at 10,144 feet. Nine miles from
Blue Mesa, I encountered a heard of cattle, and a few cowboys, that
continued on for the next 6 miles. Photo © copyright by Charles Whiting.
