Chimney Rock Sunset

Chimney Rock is hidden in the Uncompahgre Wilderness, Colorado. There is no trail to get to this overlook point. The hill is pretty steep with lots of dead tree falling on the ground obstructing the path. It was also raining during our hike. I almost gave up the trip because I was certain that it would be more difficult and unsafe when we return after sunset. But when we finally arrived at this point and this view open up in front of me, it was more stunning than I thought. I am glad I did not give up and the effort was totally worthwhile.
After sunset, we followed other photographers to get back to their parking lot which is unexpected far away from our car (about 3 miles). It was totally dark. We were so tired at that moment. Luckily one photographer gave us a ride to get our car and we finished our adventure safely.
