You may wish to take a short walk west of the parking area to get a terrific vista of Mt Sneffels with the rail fence in the foreground. Fall foliage can add lots of color to the scene.

About 2 miles west of the photo op location, Last Dollar Road (described in detail in the Telluride Area) heads south. There is a field of sunflowers a few miles down the road with the Sneffels range in the background; a fine photo op!

Sh 62 continues another 11 miles past Last Dollar Rd to its junction with SH 145 in Placerville.
