The two photos were taken along the West Elk Loop Scenic and Historic Byway.
Photo #1 — is the rock outcropping which can be viewed along hwy92 close to Crawford. Not too far from there, you will find Crawford State Park.
Photo #2 — is of the West Elk Mountains which can be seen along hwy12, otherwise known as Kebler Pass. The road is a 32-mile dirt road with spectacular scenery, hiking, fishing, wildlife viewing and some history thrown in for good measure.
Week #2 photos for the Guess the Byway Photo Contest will be posted on Sunday.
