Iola

Heading home we hit Blue Mesa Reservoir outside Gunnison CO just as an early snowstorm was coming in from the west. At the upper end of the reservoir, lowered by a prolonged and serious drought, the basin where the old town of Iola emerged. The re-emergence of the town-site coupled with the foreboding storm was impressive to witness.
