We pulled into a scenic overlook that gives a panoramic view back toward Boulder and canyon country to the south and east. We took a few pictures and continued along. As the road started its gradual descent, it began to rain again and we drove through a muted, misty landscape of tall evergreens and aspens. We'd see an occasional stream rushing down the mountainside and under the road toward the valley below. There are quite a few campgrounds along this stretch of road and they weren’t crowded, but there were plenty of folks out enjoying the wilderness on this Labor Day.
