Colorado 2008: Wild Ride

This week I will be posting pictures from our summer vacation in Colorado. Sewing-related posts will begin again next week.

By mid-week, we had traveled south as far as Ouray, Colorado, where we rented Jeep Wranglers and spent a day driving "off-road" in the mountains.

A view within Yankee Boy Basin

Wildflowers and Twin Falls, in Yankee Boy Basin, along the way to Mt. Sneffles (one of Colorado's 14,000+ peaks)

Finally, a scene from Animas Forks, Colorado, a former mining town (in the late 1800s) and current ghost town. It is located close to Silverton, Colorado, at a little over 11,000 feet above sea level.
