Here's a look at what I was talking about. Mid-September it got close to freezing at night, but we didn't have heat or electricity other than lights and we were OK. Cold, but OK. Daytime was pretty comfortable.

Sunset at our free campsite.

Panorama of the Collegiate Peaks.
Mid-September fall colors. Lots of birch trees.
Taylor Lake Reservoir
$12/night campground just before the boondocking sites. I don't think they had electric but they did have a water pump.
View from our campsite at River's End.

Wonderful rainbow after a storm.

Cottonwood Pass. Continental Divide at 12,126 feet.
The road just on the other side of the pass. The whole thing is 18 miles I think. Slow driving only!
