Just around the corner and down a dusty road there is a place, no, place isn't the word, there is an "experience". I escape to this experience often. It is one of my favorite things to do, by myself, almost any time. While it is mostly inaccessible during the winter, it is most beautiful in the summer, when the creatures show themselves. Last Dollar Road is an unpaved stretch of bumpiness that can take you from Telluride all the way to Ridgway with a good four wheel drive vehicle. In the past it was a mining road and today it is still the only way to get to the famous Aldasoro Family's remaining private ranch. For me, it is my backyard, just about a 3 minute drive from my house, and while I don't usually go all the to Ridgway, I love to drive all the way to a 270 degree overlook where I can see Mt. Wilson and beyond. Want to join me for a drive? Check it out....
