You probably noticed that this blog contains fewer pictures and that theyíre not quite the same quality. My digital camera finally gave up the ghost, So, until I reach Montrose, I have to shoot pictures with my cell phone and send them to myself via E-mail.
Iíve noticed, that here in the Colorado Mountains, most drivers have been very courteous and patient. I think thatís not only a reflection of the driversí character, but also of the roads. When the roads are similar to the one in the photo above, being patient is not only nice, itís also a requirement for survival.
After descending to the bottom of the canyon, I started trekking up the river. By the time I get to Placerville, Iíll be back at the 7200 foot elevation, that I started the day with.
