    Tucked away in the San Juan Mountains of Southwestern Colorado is one of the true gems of our public lands - the Alpine Loop. Sculpted by the forces of volcanoes, glaciers, and wind and rain, the resulting mountains, valleys, streams, and lakes are a masterpiece of nature’s artistry.

    The Alpine Loop National Back Country Byway is primarily public land managed by the BLM and the Forest Service. It is part of the National Scenic Byway system — a selection of the country’s most scenic roads identified and managed for the enjoyment of the millions of people who drive for pleasure. Unlike most scenic byways, which are located on paved highways, back country byways focus on the out-of-the-way sights to be found on gravel and dirt roads.

      Hey, I live close to this! Sorta. It mentions Ouray and I’m not too far from there.

      This reminds me of the area around Thunderbluff for some reason and I haven’t even played WoW in a year.
