The Way Home
We flew in and out of Denver for our trip to California. Arriving at dusk in Denver, meant we would be heading into the mountains after dark, which is never a good idea. So, we spent the night, and were able to hit a couple of the big box stores before we left town.
We go through several mountain ranges, that make of the Rocky Mountains of Colorado (and several valleys). Here we have pulled over at an observation point to stretch our legs. You are looking at the Sawatch Range (near Buena Vista), which is made up of fifteen peaks over 14,000 ft. We must go over these into another valley, before our climb up the San Juan Range to our place.
The skies are looking a bit threatening....as you can see.
We did take the time to read all of the information signs about the area. Colorado is so good about telling you about the area you are in.
I must admit that I didn't actually read them all. I was too busy looking at the other sights.
How could one persons life be so different from winter to summer? Well stick around and see. I live in a cosmopolitan city half of the year and then head to a tiny town in the mountains the other half.....a place full of interesting people, beautiful scenery, wild animals......and great adventures!
