Highway 108 to Bridgeport

Sept. 2002

We've had the cabin for 3 years, but this was the first time that we actually drove all the way over Highway 108 to Highway 295 and into Bridgeport. It takes quite a while to drive, it took us probably 6-7 hours to drive over it and back, maybe even longer. By the time we got to Bridgeport, it was already dark. We had dinner and headed back.

Amazing that there's a waterfall left this late in the season

And even a little bit of snow!

The aspens were shimmering in the breeze!
