I can't edit my post anymore, but the picture of the stream is the Animas River as it flows thru old gold mining country near Highway 550 between Ouray and Durango. The others are pictures taken from the 4wd drive road over Ophir Pass near Telluride.

I added the caption for you.

Send me captions, in order, for each pic and I'll add them to your post.

That 3rd pic makes me wanna start singing "Rocky Top" by the Osborne Bros.

Thanks!

Beautiful! Please post more pics! Thank you all for the info. Keep it coming.

Actually Colorado reminds me a lot more of Southern Chile which is one the beautiful places I've ever been.

from Wiki & more of a close up from AARP.
