Two Years Ago

Link back two years:
Black Bear Pass (CLICK HERE)
Telluride and Black Bear Pass (CLICK HERE)

fast forward to the present-
I'm not running Black Bear Pass this year because I want to hit some different trails. However it's a spectacular trail as evidenced by the photos (link above).

This year I'm not staying in Ouray, I'm in Telluride. Telluride is a city with a rich history in the annals of the Old West. Black Bear Pass is the pass at the center (top of mountain) of this photo.

The drive from Ouray to Telluride is very spectacular. Because it's so easy on the eyes, I enjoy the trip daily. These are the San Juan Mountains of Southern Colorado. (Uncompahgre National Forest)

This is a view of Telluride from an airplane above. Note the rugged San Juan Mountains that I'm driving my truck over this week.

Amanda, you would be in your element. However, Griffin would need to be a bit older. There are lots of cliffs. I spoke with the Chief of Police from Ouray yesterday and he said they lost somebody over a cliff last week (on foot). They typically have three or four auto-over-a-cliff fatalities a year and easily that number of people who stray too close to the edges.

Looks like a great place to explore.

I'm glad I'm working my way backwards and have seen your later post on your trip. It's beautiful scenery but... oh never mind the buts... it's you LL.
