Title

Virginia Canyon Highway, Colorado

Description

Unofficially known as the "Oh My God" Road, this winding route was created to service silver mines, some of which are visible in the postcard view. It's of interest because this location probably was the basis for New Deal Gallery artist Philip Cheney's painting Rocky Mountain Highway--which probably overstates the amenites of this track without guardrails or other amenities.
