CO Driving Trip - San Juan Mountains and Telluride Resort - 9/12/2013
As we headed towards Telluride, we saw an awesome sunset on the San Juan Mountains. We jumped out of the car and took a few quick photos. The wonderful lighting only lasted a few seconds.
We arrived at the Mountain Village Resort at dusk. I was tired and it took a while to figure out where to park and where our room was located. I was on the way to drag all the luggage from the car to our room. There was nothing convenient about the Village. It is a great ski resort to stay a week at I suspect, but not an easy place to spend just one night. You can see a little frustration in the photo. Sigrid was on the balcony of our room as I passed below her.
The room was very nice with a living room and separate bedroom.
Very rustic and romantic. There is a large stone fireplace just to the right of the photo. We started it for a few minutes but the room got too hot almost immediately. It really wasn't that hot outside. We also had a full kitchen which we didn't get to use in our one evening. Sigrid got a great price for our stay off the internet. It didn't cost any more than a Holiday Inn since we were there in the off season.
The next post will have more of Telluride.
