52 Rolls Week 30:52

This week Holga goes back to the High Country.  With special ‘soft focus effects’ because I had it set on the wrong focussing range.  However, upon examination I actually like the effect.  So here goes:

RoadtoGeorgetown

Above, driving up Interstate Highway 70 going west out of Denver, CO.  A really treacherous mountain road in bad weather, mostly because people drive way to fast in the snow and rain.   Maximum elevation 11, 158 feet at the Eisenhower Tunnels. Can be closed periodically in the winter and spring by hazardous snow conditions.  CDOT has won awards for their heroic efforts to keep this road open in the winter. And occasionally there are rock falls that close the road too.

Georgetown

We exited just below the Eisenhower Tunnel at Georgetown, and old mining town. Below: Main Street.  We’ll come back and take a walking tour sometime soon.

An overview of the town as we head up the  Guanella Pass Road.

A the south end of the Pass Road a little Americana………..At the Jerky Hut. And below the Road to Fairplay, located in the Real South Park (an inter-montane valley).  There is no actual town of South Park for fans of the animated show……..
