The east side of Monarch Pass, between Salida and Gunnison. I've had some fun winter drives over this damned hill... in my jeep, in a big furniture truck (that we named "Champ"), and in the school bus i used to drive for the Gunny school district. Even so, it's probably one of the better maintained passes in Colorado. I remember feeding chipmunks at the top of it when I was a kid on family vacations. This isn't the greatest photo...our camera seems to struggle with subtle blues.
