not that far away,
but for some reason, I really have not spent a ton of time there.
Thanks to my BucketList, which has visiting all of the National Parks on it, a trip was planned....
to visit 3 out of the 4 in Colorado, and a few other places.
one week with the following places to visit:
Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park
Great Sand Dunes National Park and Preserve
Durango and Silverton
Mesa Verde National Park
4 Corners Monument
Hovenweep National Monument
The week before we left, I checked the weather in all of the locations and got very happy temperatures, mid 70's, but by the time I pulled out of SLC (it was another driving trip), the temperatures had risen dramatically.
Record or near record highs were reached at all of the locations we visited.
grrrrr...It was a little warm, ok HOT, but we still had fun.
This is just the introduction,
I will be doing a post for each one of the parks and the other adventures, due to all of the pictures I took on the trip.
However, to start it off, I would like to introduce you to our constant companion in Colorado.
|Rabbitbush or Goldenrod, we are still confused....|
It was nice getting to know you better.
