This trip just getting better. The Million Dollar Highway or San Juan Skyway takes you from Durango to Ouray with ridiculous switchbacks, drop offs and cliff side “hanging” roads..
While Jennifer was driving through the beautiful Mountains, we spotted this waterfall and pulled over to snap a picture. Jennifer was just going to stay in the Van. I walked over and was trying to get a picture and then she meandered over. We were parked on a downhill grade, and I asked her if she put the emergency brake on (Aly was still in the car). She got a very concerned look on her face… 🙂
I just had to include this picture of her running back to the Travato before it started to roll down the highway… 😀
We rolled into Ouray about evening and thought we’d check for the off chance there might be an open space at the amphitheater campground.. There were several; but only for “small vehicles”.
Good thing we got our “little Travato”!
Had a Cinnamon Bear come visit us in the morning too, but didn’t manage to get a picture..
Somehow, we got off trail, which mama wasn’t real comfortable with 😉 , (that hill is a lot steeper than it looks in this picture).
…and even got to do a little gold pannin’ to remind me of my prospectin’ days, before returning to camp 🙂
As if that wasn’t enough for one day, we jumped in the Van and headed to town, had some delicious HUGE burgers at Maggies Kitchen, and soaked our bones in the Hot Springs.
This was a good day!
