On Durango Mountain...
06/18/13. Here is Fred schooling the innkeeper about the stagechoah road that went from Pinkerton Hot Springs at the north end of the Animas Valley through Hermoas Park behind us and on over to Rico. It's been abandoned for over 100 years but is still easy to find and walk on. As long as you don't mind hopping a fence or two.
06/16/13. It was....a beautiful day to get married. Especially when surrounded by family. Tennille and John were blessed with lots of that. I think the entire midwest showed up for the nuptials. Most of them are staying on till Tuesday. Smart people, those cheeseheads.
06/14/13. This one's for you, Sheldon!
06/13/13. The Roconteurs are (mostly) back at at it once again. This week we hiked into a raft and down the river through Durango town. Boy was it pretty. You can hardly see the town over the high lush banks. Plenty of rapids and plenty of time for what the Raconteurs do best. Thank you Greg Martin!
06/12/13. Haviland Lake is looking very appealing this summer. Especially from the middle. Just six miles down the road and full of fish. The Smiths, who are here for a month, pulled a couple of 16 inch trout out of the water just last week. Gotta find out what kind of bait they're using.
06/10/13. Dandelions are up and they sure are pretty.
06/08/13. It's the season of love. And for some reason a considerable number of those luckiest people seem to find their way to the Silverpick Lodge. Steve and Ellen and thier extended families left this morning after a high altitude wedding surrounded by the High Rockies and overlooking Molas Lake. Those will be some nice memories. Ellen and Steve forever!
