We're back on the San Juan Skyway and this time there's a noticeable difference....it snowed!
It's a lot different on this side of the mountain, much more like you'd expect from a place that calls themselves the "Switzerland of America". The views are absolutely amazing, each one better than the next. This is also a point where I'm wishing I had a better camera. My pictures do nothing to convey how beautiful it really was up there, and I was just getting more and more frustrated after each shot. At times I'd give up, then I couldn't contain myself anymore and would just shoot right thru the windshield. Then a rock came at me and lodged right in the middle of my view!
It just hit me why they call them the Rocky Mountains.
We're so high now, we're getting to the top of the tree line.
We took a little side trip into Telluride so Joey could show us where he once went to a high society Christmas party (as if that'd EVER happen now) and to see The Castle on the Hill. Can you see it?
Look closer, above the frozen waterfall.
How'd ya like to live there?
The kids were regular troopers on this road trip, and not one time did I hear a complaint about my picture taking or have my camera hidden. That's what I call a successful trip.
