Spring trips

Spring and May mean travel time most years.... The minute you're outside of the city limits, you sigh and breathe more freely.

Telluride and the San Juan mountains from a restaurant at the top of a ski lift
Dallas Divide in the San Juans. Telluride is on the other side of those 14,000 + feet peaks. This is where the famous horseback shootout with John Wayne in True Grit was shot.
