Last Dollar Road: Hastings Mesa

Saturday morning Sprocket and I headed out to get in a bit of an adventure before the snow blew in. (As it turns out, it held out until Sunday mid-day and then it hit but that’s a story for tomorrow.) We drove out to the end of winter maintenance on Last Dollar Road and headed out for a jaunt along the road. Last Dollar is fairly heavily used by snowmobiles so I didn’t even need to use my snowshoes as we ambled along the road, enjoying the view.

Last Dollar Road is a fun place with views towards the Wilsons (and yes, I totally think, “I’ve climbed those!” when I look over there) and Lone Cone:

And then you look on the western flanks of the Sneffles Range at North Pole Peak and it’s brethren:

As we were heading back to the trailhead, it appeared clouds were gathering but it felt so good to be out wandering with Sprocket.
