Slumgullion Pass

We left Lake City and headed for Creede on Thursday, driving over Slumgullion Pass.  There is an overlook with a great view of Lake San Cristobal.

Jay isn't shorter than me, he was just standing a little lower than I was.

The Windy Point Overlook has a nice view of Wetterhorn, Matterhorn and Uncompahgre Peaks.

I didn't get a great picture of the Slumgullion Earthflow slide, but you can see some of it through the trees here.  The slide is still active and can change up to 20 feet a year.  This slide of decomposed volcanic rock began 700 years ago and helped dam and form Lake San Cristobal.
