After breakfast at our campsite we decided to do some exploring. We had passed by the entrance to the Lands End Observatory several times. A sign there indicated it was about 11 miles and appeared to be gravel road.
While we did not make it all the way to the observatory we did make it to what used to be the welcome center. Many of the views along the road made the trip very worthwhile. We hope you will agree.
There are trails at the center which are along the very edge of Grand Mesa overlooking the valley several thousand feet below. Unbelievable vistas.
And on our way back to the highway we found one aspen tree which had the golden color we hope to see in abundance in the next week or two.
