A Forest Jeep Drive

We took a drive. It was on FR (Forest Road) 144. It went from Espanola west for 60 miles. We went as high as 10,946 ft up. Along the way we saw some beautiful scenery and found one geocache. It took us 4 hours and 8 minutes to go the 60 miles.

This was the view where the geocache was found.

 We could see the other side of the butte we see at our campsite and the lake were we are camped.

Many different rock formations.
We met a couple from Australia when we were eating lunch and they showed us an intesting phamplet about a road we hadn't seen so off we went. The scenery was beautiful.
 It took us to the Gillman Tunnels that were dug thru two mountains in 1920.
The road took us out near Fenton Lake State Park.
 The campsites are very small and the lake had scum on most of it.
As it was getting near sunset we were on the road back to our campground and witnessed this pretty butte just glowing in the sun.
