Just a quick update before we head to our cabin on Lake Vallecito (outside Durango). We started this road trip last Friday without a ton of plans. I knew we’d be driving a lot, seeing a concert, and drinking the best beer that Colorado has to offer. What I didn’t know was…
how surreal the sky would look.
how farmers in the Southwest would look a lot like farmers in the Midwest, except with cowboy hats and more horses.
how mountains could make you feel so tiny in this huge world.
how Mother Nature could make driving on the windiest of mountain roads ever interesting.
how those long drives and hikes would always be worth the views at the top.
how powerful (and fast) storms in the Southwest could be.
And how, even after raging fires and devastating drought, the Earth could still be beautiful.
I’ll have a more comprehensive Colorado post when we return. I hope you enjoyed Mary’s guest post about eating local! I have another guest post in the works for later this week. I hope wherever you’re from is treating you well at the moment.
What did you discover about a place you’ve traveled that you never expected to find?
