Columbine on Imogene Pass in August.

We've driven the incredibly difficult Imogene Pass road in the magnificent San Juan mountains in August. The Pass crests at 13,000 + and it took us 5 1/2 hours to travel 15 miles. It's amazing how long it can take to stop every 25 feet and calculate exactly at what angle you should attempt to crawl over the boulder ahead.

Imogene Pass is what in Colorado is known reverently as an "Oh my God!" road. That's because even atheists are moved to intense prayer by that single track, 120 degree curve bit with the 3,000 drop off where you meet the on-coming four by four and one of you has to back up without going over the edge.

But there are many less death-defying pleasures - there's always the wildflowers and views like this, which we saw coming down the Telluride side: Bridal Veil Falls (although this picture was taken in late September about a month after we were there).
