Two years ago, a late afternoon business trip to Woodland Park, west of Colorado Springs, was made. A few photos from the short drive …
west bound on US 24, just west of Manitou Springs
further west on US 24, the fence on the right shoulder is to reduce rocks falling onto the roadway
the flat portion just above the highway is the old railroad bed
one of many curves as US 24 winds through Ute Pass

Locally, this is one of the nicest drives. It can be challenging with a series of S-curves driving through the lower portion, more so when rain slickened or icy. And, if you’re wondering, someone else was driving while I was taking pictures.
