CO Dreaming

A view form the top of California Gulch near Silverton CO.

Might as well start a Monday off by day dreaming.   My wife and I have longed to live in CO.  We have camped and skied all over the  state and always leave wanting more.

Today’s image is from our summer trip to Durango.  I captured this amazing view from the California Gulch trail just outside of Silverton CO.  We were offroading the whole day and just enjoying the scenery.  Every turn on the trail opened up another gorgeous view of the San Juan mountains.  Wouldn’t it be nice if your daily drive was through the Rocky Mountains.

Until next time…
