You can almost images what it was like back then in the old west days. Like going back in time. This is and incredible scenic road to take if you are ever out for a drive in Utah.
This images is a black and white with sepia processing and a hand touch of selective coloring. Sepia is one of my most favorite processing.

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…”

It was so nice for this beautiful Palomino horse to pose for me in the snow and a background of fog. Some Palomino facts. Palomino is a coat color in horses, consisting of a gold coat and white mane and tail. Genetically, the palomino color is created by a single allele of a dilution gene called the cream gene working on a “red” (chestnut) base coat. ( Prints for sale online – Palomino Horse in the Snow )
Some palomino horses are classified as a color breed. However, unlike the Appaloosa or the Friesian, which are distinct breeds that also happen to have a unique color preference, Palomino color breed registries often accept a wide range of breed or type if the animals are properly golden-colored. The Palomino cannot be a true horse breed, however, because palomino color is an incomplete dominant gene and does not breed “true”. A palomino crossed with a palomino may result in a palomino about 50% of the time, but could also produce a chestnut (25% probability) or a cremello (25% probability). Thus, palomino is simply a partially expressed color allele and not a set of characteristics that make up a “breed.”

Love this view of this beautiful smiling Palomino horse in the snow. A Palomino is not a horse breed, but a color of horse. Palominos can be any type of breed and can be registered in that particular breeds registry. However, every Palomino that is registered with the Palomino Horse Breeders of America must have the Palomino colors and must stand 14 to 17 hands tall. In order to be registered they can only have white on them below the knee or on their face. Prints available online – Smiling Palomino in the Snow
The Palomino gains its name from the Royal family in Spain, Palomina. Horses with Palomino coloring have been very popular throughout history. Cortes brought a number of Queen Isabella’s Palominos with him to America in 1519. Some of these, or their offspring, eventually escaped and contributed to the Palomino coloring once common in Mustangs. Although Palominos are found in many different breeds, about 50 percent are registered Quarter horses.
