Driving to Durango

8 11 2014

We were on the road early this morning for the 4+ hour drive to Durango, travelling the whole way on highway 160.

We experienced a wide range of landscapes from high desert plains to national forest to snow covered mountains to 10,500 ft passes (Wolf Creek Pass) then to meadows and pastureland.  This sure is pretty countryside. Some of the ladies in the group had never touched snow,  so we stopped at one place high in the pass for them to get out and touch it. Unfortunately it was quite hard and icy, not new snow.

Durango was our overnight stop,  and we got there about 1pm so there was plenty of time to check out the quaint shops  and have lunch before we hit the quilt store around 4pm. They didn’t know we were coming… I bet they had their best November Friday takings ever!!

Here are some photos from today’s drive to Durango. As you can see we had perfect conditions for driving. And it was T-shirt weather too!
