Recently, I have accomplished enough information on our house plan to make a run to Colorado. It's roughly under 700 miles from my door step in AZ to our soon to be door step in the mountains. What made this trip even more interesting was the early winter storm that passed through the southwest and into the Rocky Mountains. Driving there was icy in some expected areas. Going back to AZ, it was only wet. I took "some" photos of the trip. Unfortunately, between driving and interviewing contractors, once we were there, my photos lacked in numbers. I did have ever intention to shoot a few photos of my truck in front of our property. I really wanted a new sig photo, but after what it went through (mud, snow, sand and who knows what else) I opted to wait till next time when I go back. Anyway, I did take a few "scenic" photos...


Early winter just outside Pagosa Springs.


Our climb to go over the continental divide (Wolf Creek Pass). No photos going down the other side, since my butt cheeks were sucking the seat to keep my truck going straight without sliding.


Still climbing to the pass. Sheesh! Pioneers must of had it tough if they didn't time it right.


Summit and every snowmobilers dream.


Thankfully, it wasn't all ice!


A view from our property.


Local critter resident close by.


Snow on the mirror...accumulated in one night outside our motel. While the rest of the state got hammered with a new storm system moving through, this is all we received.


Heading back to AZ in another system that provided more head wind than snow. My best gas mileage was 18.5 mpg (best ever since I owned it). My worst was heading home with 16 mpg.


In Colorado you might see a cattle drive heading down a state hyway. Git along little doggies! LOL!

And the one photo I wished I had taken was one where we were just outside Kayenta, along the state route, and I came up behind a car with AZ plates going 50 in a 65 zone. I passed him, pushing 70 and looking back in the rear view mirror I observed the state bird from his car (I guess he didn't like my dual exhaust - it is loud when it hits). Only in AZ...Only in AZ...LOL!

SNOW!!! Wonderful, beautiful, glorious, I dreaming of a White Christmas snow! Fortunately, not much of it will fall at our new digs. Just all around us in the surrounding mountains. I am not too hip on shoveling the stuff. Just looking at it...

The coldest it dropped down to, when we were there, was 22 degrees. That same morning, around 10, I met with a contractor at our property in a t-shirt under an long sleeve outwear knitted shirt because I was too hot with a jacket on. As long as the wind doesn't blow, then it's all good.

Haha, when I see numbers like that, I am strictly thinking Celsius. Have fun...
