We left Holbrook, AZ to go to Montrose, CO for a planned visit to Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park. I drove over 400 miles, with a detour to the Four Corners Monument where the borders of Arizona, Colorado, New Mexico and Utah meet. Not much to see there.

The drive got really serious in Colorado between Cortez and Montrose, with many hairpin turns and a steady climb up the mountains. Fortunately the aspens were at their height of fall colors and I stopped a couple times so that we can take pictures.
