San Juan Mountains

We left AZ. under clear skies but with the "threat" of "weather"!
After a nine hour drive we stopped downtown Ridgway at Colorado Boy Brewery for pizza then on up to the house.

DGS #2 and his friend.

At 9,000ft. it was a balmy 34degrees at midnight last night but today this is the scene.

We "hiked" up around the road to visit neighbors in the next house you see in this pic. I had planned to take the "short cut" down the back to come home but the snow was up to our hips and Button disappeared completely so DH and I came back by the road but the boys came cross country braving the deep drifts!

Snow stuck to the windows, it was coming down horizontal!


The skiing will be fabulous this week.
