The Scenic Drive To Cottonwood Pass - Chaffee County, CO
My Video As I Traveled On Chaffee County Road 306 Toward The Pass - June 14, 2011
Drive To Cottonwood Pass
I began at the "upper parking lot," located approximately
one mile west of the Denny Creek Trailhead. I held out my
digital camera with my left hand and drive with my right ... with a stick shift no less!
I have a few friends and acquaintances who
make driving videos by mounting their camera on their dashboard. While that might be convenient,
I personally like holding the
camera so I can turn toward whatever scenery might be most interesting,
instead of merely straight ahead.
As you can see, plenty of snow remains at Cottonwood Pass on the Continental Divide.
Enjoy the scenic drive with me! -Steve
