We stopped at the Dillon Pinnacles viewpoint every morning of our stay in the area to eat a picnic breakfast before heading out for our adventures. Spectacularly beautiful scenery and not to be missed!

We were able to see these from the road and from Blue Mesa Reservoir. They were spectacular from every angle. I brought home many pictures.
