From there they continued north up into the high country of Flat Tops Wilderness Area, with its rugged and beautiful scenery and gorgeous wildflower displays;

Rifle Gap & Drive: After lunch they continued deeper into the Flat Top's, stopping at Deep Canyon and Deep Lake, with more spectacular scenery and wildflowers. They then returned to Rifle and then headed home to the Denver area, stopping along the way at Dotsero Volcano and some nearby incredible geologic folds in the nearby rocks.
