Wolf Creek Pass (el. 10,857 ft.) is a high mountain pass on the Continental Divide, in the San Juan Mountains of Colorado. It is the route through which U.S. Highway 160 passes from the San Luis Valley into southwest Colorado on its way to New Mexico and Arizona. The pass is notable as inspiration of a C. W. McCall song. The pass is significantly steep on either side (6.8% maximum grade) and can be dangerous in winter. There is a runaway truck ramp on the westbound side for truckers that lose control of their brakes.
So beautiful! Well worth the stop!
It was worth stopping for sure! So beautiful! My husband went out on the rock pictured above and took a ton of pictures!
Such beautiful scenery!!!! The lodge was closed for repairs but that didn't take away from the beauty that's all around you!!
