Chaffee County Road 343

Video - Scenic Colorado Drive

June 17, 2012 - Today I drove on Chaffee County Road 343, located west of Buena Vista, Colorado. Some who travel from Buena Vista to Cottonwood Lake, take this road as a short cut. I began where the road connects with Chaffee County Road 344 at the Spring Canyon Conference Center, and take it all the way to Chaffee County Road 306.

Near 0:25 to 0:30, I pass the Colorado Trail. I've taken this trail to reach Bald Mountain; another time I hiked to the Mt. Princeton Hot Springs. Months earlier, I also walked quietly on the trail on the left (west) side of the road. Somewhere in that steep canyon at 0:45 is the site of the Cottonwood Hot Springs. It's a simple video; enjoy if you're interested. :)
