Guanella Pass is the real deal

Looking east toward Denver from Guanella Pass road. It stretches 22 miles from Georgetown, Colorado to U.S.Highway 285 and ascends to over 11,000 feet

image Guanella Pass is directly above Georgetown , Colorado, which is about forty-five miles west of Denver.

Guanella Pass Road goes past the Xcel Energy Hydro Power  station and the mountain lake which feeds the station (above). This half-way paved road is what real Colorado looks like.
