Drive from Denver to Durango, CO

This drive was probably my longest so far on the road trip but one of the most scenic (photos).  I was on the road for nearly 7 hours and it would have probably been shorter had it not been for the amazing mountain, valley and sunset views I came across while winding my way through Colorado.  The drive was very scenic, going over two mountain passes, driving through cattle ranches and quaint mountain towns.  It rained, it was sunny - I drove through both warm and cool climates. 

My friend Tony Gieda and his wife Heather live in Durango, CO - and that was the reason for including it on my itinerary.  Tony was a great host - greeting me with a burger and beers after my long drive.

The next day Tony took me on a tour of Durango, CO and we drove up to Molas Pass Summit at 10,910 feet.  The views were amazing - every where you turned.  The Aspens were just starting to turn yellow and from what Tony tells me - they'll continue to go through dramatic colorful change by the end of September.

Big thanks to Tony for accommodating me for two days in Durango - I had a great time meeting his dogs and catching up with him and his wife while I was there.
