Had a good couple of days! Yesterday was an epic bus ride – for more than 12 hours we were on one bus or another, first heading west over the Rockies from Denver to Grand Junction and then south from there to Durango, by way of every other tiny little town near the Four Corners or so it seemed.
In the end I didn’t really mind the distance or the time because this was unlike any other bus ride I have taken. The Rocky Mountains are amazing. Breathtaking. Astonishing. If you haven’t been out here, even if just to see them from afar, you absolutely have to do it. If you have, I suspect that these pictures will make you want to go back…
It is so exciting to be traveling and seeing these places that are connected to me – I was born in Denver, but we left before I was even a year old, so I have no memories of it.
This is such a beautiful and amazing place. It’s not my beloved desert, but it is definitely wonderful. I ca’n’t wait to get out there and see it up close!
More on Durango and our plans for the trip in tomorrow’s post!
