A gallery has been added specifically for the annual trip to the Big Cimarron Valley and Owl Creek Pass area. Located east of Ridgway, CO about 25 miles, the Big Cimarron Valley and Owl Creek Pass area have been a favorite for years. Even in "off years" for color such as 2013, the area continue to amaze for it's incredible views. Adding snow, clouds, and fog banks just makes it that much more special. Each year after the pilgrimage to the Big Cimarron Valley and Owl Creek Pass, we say it just can't get any better. Yet it continues to do so. Come join us - first week of October. You won't be disappointed! The original "True Grit" was filmed in the area in the late 1960s. Since I could not make the trip in 2014 due to medical reasons, I have added some additional images from past years. It's been fun going back and seeing images that didn't make the first cut for the website, yet are still stunning! Enjoy!
