Default Glenwood Canyon Images

One of the neat drives we made, several times, going from Vail to Aspen and other points, was the stretch of 8-10 miles on I70 just before arriving in Glenwood Springs. The Interstate goes through a stretch of what's called Glenwood Canyon, with the Colorado River flowing quite briskly at the bottom.

It's really ingenious how engineers were able to snake a 4 lane highway through such a beautiful place without making all that much a footprint. The higher-left-hand side in the image below are the two west-bound lanes of I70, with the lower right-hand side the east-bound lanes, captured with the 7-14mm f2.8.



The last day we were there, we took a couple of the exits, parked the car and hiked alongside the Colorado River.







Another view of the interstate..

Thanks guys.

Bob, I've always liked trains. Had one other opportunity during the trip, capturing this while on the River Road and following the Colorado River in the back-country..

Beautiful set but the train shot is my favorite.
