San Juan Skyway

by AnnIMG_1859 Since Billy arrived in Bayfield on May 23 he has worked six days a week.  Whenever someone was going sightseeing and they invited him to go along he would say “I’ll wait until Ann gets here.”  So today we went on the San Juan Skyway Loop  and the Million Dollar HighwayIMG_1860 The views were beautiful.  I’m always on the lookout for waterfalls. IMG_1863 Our second stop was at Molas Pass with an elevation of 10,899 feet.IMG_1866 When we drove up we saw some of the Carpenter’s Hands group.  Here is Clyde and Jimmy.IMG_1867 Our next stop was Box Canon Park where the water flows down through a narrow canyon.  You can walk into it and it’s like being in a cavern.  


The water is really rushing through and it is very misty.IMG_1873

The view from the top.IMG_1875 Me on the bridge.IMG_1879 We went into town of Ouray for lunch.  We decided to stop at a outdoor taco stand.  Guess who was there?  Carpenter’s Hands.IMG_1880 We had been told you could get a free gondola ride in Telluride so we did that.  IMG_1881 The gondola was the public transportation from the town of Telluride over to the large ski resort, Mountain Village.

The remainder of the loop was uneventful and really sort of boring.  We stopped for dinner back in Durango at Serious Texas Barbecue.
