Probably a stretch and I don't know if it's a specific riding area, but it sure looks like a place off of 131 I got lost in back in 2008, with the Flattops behind. I think north of McCoy a bit.

So is the view to the SW and Sangre de Cristos range, and not NW and the Collegiates? Seems like it, if you are SW of Canon City - looks like the valley between the Sangres and the Wet Mountains.
