US Route 285 runs south from Denver to far western portions of Texas. It's an important highway in eastern New Mexico as well. US Route 285 has its northern end positioned along Interstate 25 on the south side of Denver, Colorado. It heads south from there through south-central Colorado and eastern New Mexico. The southern end lies in a small town somewhat near the Mexican border, called Sanderson, Texas, at US Route 90.
My photo of US Route 285 comes from the junction with Colorado State Highway 368, situated south of Alamosa, Colorado. The sign assembly shown faces north, indicating the right turn onto the eastern extent of Colorado State Highway 368. This photo was taken in September, 2022, during a trip to visit all four of the national parks located within Colorado.
