Looking southeast into Colorado - The San Juan Mountains
Hundereds of these peaks are over 13,000 feet and many above 14,000 feet.
For more information about these places look up Durango, Silverton, and Telluride.

Mill Creek is visible through the middle, above that is the Slickrock Bike Trail.
The ridge in the background is the Moab Rim.
The opening in the rim is the Colorado River.

Looking over Wilson Mesa, where I think they have a missle tracking station,
toward the Big Bend in the Colorado River.
