We left South Fork on Friday afternoon instead of Saturday to stay ahead of a storm. There was a lot of snowing going on at Wolf Creek Pass so we decided not to risk it and headed south and then west on Rt. 64 on our way to Chama, NM. The road climbed to over 10,500' and was quite snowy at the top. The road was dry, there were were no major hairpin turns, and all the climbs were much easier on the truck because of the cooler temps. There was very little traffic and very few homes.
We probably wouldn't have taken this road if we'd known it climbed to 10,500', but are glad we didn't know because it was a lovely drive.
