Scenic Drive: Telluride and Dunton in the San Juan Mountains
A number of friends were visiting western Colorado and
we gathered one day in Telluride.
We were so happy to see each other! On this page is our photos from our scenic drive in San Juan Mountains.
After stopping for coffee in Ridgway, we arrived in Telluride to have lunch.
We ended up at Emilio's on the main avenue in
Telluride, and you can see some more photos of out time here: Eating Pictures.
Dave-O (with a leg cast and holding the pepper) is a fellow bicyclist. We've had our own Colorado bike adventures:
Around the main entrance to Mountain Village,
it began to rain really hard! Poor Kelly pulled over quickly and put the top of her Jeep.
A couple of photos of the mountains at Lizard Head Pass.
Aw, a nice shot of Glenda and Judy,
two visitors from Texas and California respectively. I think they both had a really great time! :)
We then took the dirt road leading to Dunton (north of Rico) and
I captured this in-action driving photo with Kelly's Jeep behind.
Dave-O seemed to be having some emotional problems
in the back seat! ;)
At a clearing with a nice view of the Wilson
mountain group behind, we captured this lovely group shot.
The town of Dunton is on private land and we were disallowed
to enter by the person we called at the entrance. Here are a couple of photos though.
