Scenic Drive: Telluride and Dunton in the San Juan Mountains


Telluride, Colorado 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:
  • Buena Vista - Salida
  • South Fork - Creede
  • Around Telluride
  • San Juan Mountains 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.

    Glenda and Judy Aw, a nice shot of Glenda and Judy, two visitors from Texas and California respectively. I think they both had a really great time! :)
    Drive to Dunton 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! ;)

    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.
    Green Jeep Yay! We had a lot of fun!
