“Dallas Divide Morning” is an outstanding high mountain original oil painting created by landscape and still life artist David Riedel. The Dallas Divide is a saddle between the San Juan Mountains and the Uncompahgre Plateau in Colorado. The pass takes gets it’s name from Dallas Creek which drains from the basin on the north side of Mount Sneffels. Dallas Divide has an elevation of 8,983 feet and is west of the town of Ridgway. The divide’s namesake is George M. Dallas, 11th Vice President of the United States.
A toll road was first constructed over Dallas Divide in 1880 linking the town of Dallas near Ridgway with Telluride. In 1890, the Rio Grande Southern Railroad was built over the divide from Ridgway to Telluride.
