On some “down time,” we decided to take a drive through Colona to Ridgway over Log Hill Mesa. By the way - Log Hill got its name from the settlers who drove their wagons and had to tie large logs behind them to slow their descent down the hill. They left those logs at the bottom of the hill and soon the Mesa became known as Log Hill.
This little fact was one we learned at a Ranger program here at the park. We had Jane Bennett, a local storyteller as a speaker. The talk was on the early ranching days in Ouray County.
From there we drove through the mountains to the south of Ridgway.
Nothing special…other than the most beautiful scenery this area has to offer!
