Sorry to hear about the car break in... it's a shame people will do things like that... really sad.
But it does look like you are getting some good shots, and thats good to hear.
Thanks Jim, I really appreciate your reply.
More updates: Drove North towards the general direction of Crested Butte, but instead of staying on 135 I took a left on Ohio Creek Road (CR 730), and the colours/scenery were even better than where I was yesterday. The East side still has a lot of greens and greens turning into yellow; but this side is not that interesting IMO.
The Western side, on the other hand, is stunning. Colours at or near peak, mixed with the evergreens, with a foreground of ranches and and mountain backgrounds all along. I believe these would be The Castles according to my map but I could be wrong. I turned back shortly before reaching Kebler Pass, which was my original destination, because I was so stunned by this area I decided to give it another round tomorrow morning (weather-permitting), so I'm staying in Gunnison for the night.
The place is only 1/2 hour north of Gunnison, on a well-maintained dirt road. Passenger vehicles should be fine, at least up to where I turned back.
If you're in the area, this place is happening now. Sorry, haven't figured out how to upload from my iPhone yet.
