Twin Peaks past Walsenburg, CO
I took this picture on my trip down to Trinidad, CO. While we were on the road, we passed the tiny town of Walsenburg, CO. The town became well known this summer when the “Dougherty Gang” lead police on a high speed chase past it. Eventually the ‘gang’ crashed their vehicle on I-25 near the Walsenburg exit.
This picture shows Twin Peaks in the distance. The mountains are located in Alamosa County. In the picture, the peaks might look close, but in reality they were probably a good 70-90 miles away. The summit of Twin Peaks is 13,556 feet.
