Colorado Western Landscape with Red Barns
Black and white with selective coloring Colorado western scenic landscape of a ranch in the high country of the Colorado Rocky Mountains with red barns. This was o the drive up Wolf Creek pass from Alamosa. So many cool view live traveling back in time the way the old west was then. Nice to see landscape not developed to the max.
Wolf Creek Pass, elevation. 10,857 ft. is a high mountain pass on the Continental Divide, in the San Juan Mountains of Colorado. It is the route through which U.S. Highway 160 passes from the San Luis Valley into southwest Colorado on its way to New Mexico and Arizona through four corners. . The pass is significantly steep on either side (6.8% maximum grade) and can be dangerous in winter.
The pass is also home to Wolf Creek ski area located on the eastern side of the Continental Divide on Highway 160. Also on the eastern side is one of the largest RV parks in the United States, located just a few miles west of South Fork, Colorado.
Wolf Creek Pass is also an attraction for tourists, as it is known for the natural beauty of the wilderness the highway passes through. Just west of the pass, about 15 miles east of Pagosa, Springs, Treasure Falls offers passers by a dramatic view of a mountain waterfall
Wolf Creek Pass was made famous in 1975 by Country music artist C. W. McCall’s humorous spoken word song of the same name, in which the pass is fondly described as “37 miles o’ hell — which is up on the Great Divide.” In the song, two truckers drive an out-of-control 1948 Peterbilt down U.S. Highway 160 to Pagosa Springs—a 5,000-foot (1,500 m) drop in elevation.
(“Wolf Creek Pass” written by Bill Fries and Chip Davis, sung by C.W. McCall)
I looked at Earl and his eyes was wide
His lip was curled, and his leg was fried.
And his hand was froze to the wheel like a tongue to a sled in the middle of a blizzard.
I says, “Earl, I’m not the type to complain
But the time has come for me to explain
That if you don’t apply some brake real soon, they’re gonna have to pick us up with a stick and a spoon…”
