2011 - February 17th - Blue Mesa Reservoir/Dillon Pinnacles, Curecanti National Recreation Area

Posted on the 09 April 2011 by Danncianca
I was heading out to Gunnison for work to do a report on weather modification. Our chief photog/videographer suggested I bring my camera along and it turned out to be very fortuitous.
While I didn't have any time to linger around and take pictures, we stopped to stretch our legs on the way out and once on the way back, both along Blue Mesa Reservoir. It was a windy day and while some parts of the state were seeing snow, we were in full sunshine.

On the way back, we stopped at a fantastic pullout and view of the Dillon Pinnacles, which looked amazing with early afternoon light.

It's always good to have that camera ready!
