Chromo's Crags

Rugged mountain country has a special beauty. Gerald had been using my little camera in place of his own to get some shots of the mountain country of southern Colorado.

Jagged peaks form the distant background for a bucolic scene of cattle grazing in lush green pastures.

Scenic Chromo and rugged Rocky Mountain crags.

Impressionistic view of peaks to the east of Chromo in southern Colorado. The area in this view furnishes waters that flow both to both sides of the Continental Divide; although on the western slope, some of these waters are diverted to a tunnel under the divide that dumps into Willow Creek, Heron Lake, and then the Rio Chama, Rio Grande, and Gulf of Mexico.
