DESTINATION: Fairview Curve Overlook, RMNP, Colorado

As we left the Holzwarth Historic Site we continued north on Trail Ridge Road.  On what seems like an endless road of climbs and switchbacks we came upon the Fairview Curve Overlook.

This outlook sits nearly 1,000 feet above the Kawuneeche Valley and offers more breathtaking  views of the Never Summer Mountains and the meandering Colorado River as it begins its flow to the Pacific Ocean.

At the overlook we met a very friendly, and talkative, park ranger volunteer that offered to take our picture.
 
Just us with the Never Summer Mountains behind us!
