Gill Creek Divide


Gill Creek Divide - Mesa County - Colorado - 8,438 feet
West Creek to north. Gill Creek to south.

From Whitewater, about 15 miles southwest on CO-141, then about 10 miles southwest on Divide Rd and FR-413.
On a rocky, dirty and sandy road that requires a bit of skills when wet. - dual sport

The Divide is mostly a flat area so the actual location of a summit is unclear.
On both the Colorado Road & Recreation Atlas and the Colorado Atlas & Gazetteer,
Gill Creek Divide is shown as a long arch instead of a point.
On the Garmin Topo Map, it is shown as a point just to the northeast of where the photos were taken.

Note, this was Shu’s 200th pass.
