#tbt• -2013- We headed straight west for 774 miles to Glenwood Springs, then zig-zagged south to Durango on the breath-taking hwys of 50 and 550 for 300 miles (plus a few side excursions), took a right on hwy 160 for another 60 miles to Mesa Verde National Park, then another 70 miles southwest to Four Corners National Monument, then came back east for 392 miles to Colorado Springs to see Garden of the God's, Manitou Cliff Dwellings, Pikes Peak, and the U.S. Olympic Headquarters.... Then straight home for 600 miles • In our last eight and a half years of adventures.... This trip was by far one of the coolest, most stressful, exhausting, prettiest, breathtaking, and some of the most miles covered in 12 days that we've ever done......🤘🏼 • 🌲 Due to fire and flooding this was our second "gypsy trip" in the books. 😜 • 🌳 Ooohh, the stories we have from this wild adventure.....🏕️🏞️🍻🌄🌌🛣️🐺🐎🛶🤘🏼 • Mesa Verde NP ➡️ 2 of 10 • "We travel not to escape life, but for life not to escape us."

And then suddenly the storm is gone, and the clouds are happy, but you still don’t get a guardrail or shoulder. 😳😬☺️ #SilvertontoOuray #redmountainpass #milliondollarhighway #HWY550 #colorado #visitcolorado @vacationsmag #fujifilm #fujifilmxt2 #myfujilove #coloradolive #vacationsandtravel

The minerals in Red Mountain Pass, aka Million Dollar Highway make for the best coloring. #theresgoldinthemhills along with all sorts of other shiny rocks. #SilvertontoOuray #redmountainpass #milliondollarhighway #HWY550 #colorado #visitcolorado @vacationsmag #fujifilm #fujifilmxt2 #myfujilove #coloradolive #vacationsandtravel

Hwy 550 is no joke and has no guardrails, but it's a cool drive with loooong drops if you don't pay attention! #milliondollarhighway #hwy550 #ouraycolorado #roadtrip #mustdodrive

The #continentaldivide isn't nearly as spectacular here in #newmexico on #hwy550. More like a little hill than a pass or divide. Nothing like it is up in #montana. @dirtfishrally @arxrallycross #Dirtfish #whereisdirtfish #rally #rallyracing #haulingracecars #arx #cota #homewardbound

Some have asked if the huge fire in Southwest Colorado was near our condo. Yes, it stopped just a few miles away. The residents at Cascade Village were evacuated for a few days. These photos show not only the beautiful color of the season but also the blackened mountains. Sad to see but out of the ashes, there will be beauty again. I know many of you, especially in California know the pain of widespread fires. #mc2m_daily #lory_welcomeautumn #sanjuanmountains #usa_naturehippys #wildfire #hwy550 #beautyoutofashes #travelphotographer #travelcolorado #colorfulcolorado #landscapephotographer #contrast #fallcolors #nmco #westbysouthwest

On the drive to Silverton from Durango, the fall colors give you a preview of what the high country has to offer.

Silverton was my favorite little town on our trip. It's such an eclectic mix of people. As I sipped a delicious beer outside @avalanchebrewingcompany I took in the conversations around me. From the solo women thru hiking who met up for a lunch beer, to the older couple RVing and talking about where they were headed for winter. These small mountain towns attract a certain type of adventure loving soul that a lot of other places don't seem to. (plus, they brew some darn good beer!) 🏕
