Cumbres Pass

The drive from Chama, New Mexico, into Colorado is a beautiful trip over Cumbres Pass.  The area was exceptionally green.

Over the years, we have driven over Cumbres Pass and ridden the Cumbres and Toltec train through this area.  This year we didn't get train tickets.

Soon we came on this iconic sign, welcoming us back to our home state.

This small community is situated in a pleasant valley.

Once we were into Colorado, we began to see the devastation caused by the pine bark beetle. Throughout the state, we see these large stands of dead trees. It is so sad to see.

  1. Beautiful scenery but nature has a way of destroying things we take for granted.
    Be Safe and Enjoy!

    It's about time.
