Cottonwood Pass Fall 2010


We are taking Cottonwood Pass from Buena Vista Colorado over the Continental Divide to Gunnison. It's early October and the fall colors on Cottonwood pass are absolutely gorgeous this time of the year. Cottonwood pass is paved to the top but only on the eastern or Buena Vista side, it is not paved on the Gunnison side and it can get a little rough.
