Back home

August 16, 2008

After nights in Telluride, Paonia, Crested Butte, Gunnison, Salida, and Breckenridge, I’m back in Denver.

Highlights: Crashing at Fresh & Wyld Farmhouse Inn in Paonia, hiking on Kebler Pass (the domain of perhaps the world’s largest organism), riding a townie (bike) up S Mountain and partying with the townies (people) in Salida…

Southwestern Colorado

August 9, 2008

I’m in SW CO researching a new edition of Frommer’s Colorado. I left Durango yesterday after a great three days. I ate at Randy’s with my folks and then posed for Old West photos because I had a coupon for a free picture (then spent another $50 on more prints), and biked the Animas River Trail the next day, ate at the Irish Embassy, met my friend Doug and went Soaring halfway up the Durango-Silverton train tracks. Now I’m in Telluride, after a hike yesterday on Lizard Head Pass.
