Friday Photo Post: Guanella Pass

On a quest to find even more "scenic panoramic vistas" for my brother when he visited us in Colorado, we drove the Guanella Pass Scenic Byway from Grant to Georgetown.

In September, it is cold and windy at the top of this mountain, so bring hats and mittens if you want to go exploring; a jacket isn't enough.
