From the bottom of the canyon, we continued up the other side on an old roadbed built in the late 20's by the Phillips Petroleum Company hoping to make big money on a well. The road is crumbling and long since impassable to vehicles. Horses and hikers can easily follow the track.
From a high point of the Spur, the view goes on forever, or at least as far as the snow-capped LaSal Mountains, about 50 miles away. No civilization is apparent. This scene has remained unchanged for millenia.
