Chattanooga Iron Fen Wetland in the Rocky Mountains

 

We passed through this wetland at 10,200' in the San Juan Mountains of Colorado near Durango. This road is closed often in the winter because there are approximately 100 avalanches that block passage.  Incredibly clear, crisp air and water.  Not nearly as crowded as Rocky Mountain National Park near Estes Park.  Highly recommended for a late summer, early autumn road trip.

    How did this get such a name? Chattanooga – that’s in Tenn. Iron – in the area? Fen – a limey bog. Is that right? Wetland I can understand. Isn’t it a rather complex name for such an area? I don’t expect you to know the answer.
