    Colorado

    April 30 in the United States

    Da es draussen grau-weiss ist, nutzen wir die Zeit um unseren Blog etwas zu aktualisieren...
    Am Monument Valley vorbei ging unsere Fahrt via weniger bekannte Aussichtsstrassen: den Moki Dugway und durch das Valley of the Gods. Somit kamen ca. weitere 40km Schotterstrasse dazu, welche sich aber absolut lohnten.
    Von Cortez in Colorado besuchten wir den bekannten Mesa Verde Nationalpark mit den sehr gut erhaltenen Cliff Dwellings. Ebenfalls machten wir einen Ausflug in die Rocky Mountains und den Skiort Telluride. Die Passstrasse dorthin führte uns auf über 3000m, da ist der Frühling noch nicht ganz angekommen...Read more

    December 24, 2015 in the United States

    we left Albuquerque and started making our way to Durango to go snowmobiling. we got to some beautiful views on the way. once we got to Durango it was full on snowing. snow everywhere. we were high up on this mountain it was crazily beautiful views. the snowmobiling was good fun I didn't enjoy it as much as everyone else but I was still happy to have done it. got it stuck at one stage ha but not as bad as a couple of others. once we finished we went in for some hot chocolates ( and baileys) that night we dressed up in some Christmas sweaters I wore Grinch pants and a Christmas bag over my top was quality. that night we partied on into Chrissy day walked home done snow angels was a really good night!Read more

    04-18 4 Corners & Cortez Golf

    April 18 in the United States

    On the way to Cortez, CO via hwy491 we drove down to 4 Corners Natl Monument run by Navajo Nation and paid $5 per person to drive out to marker. Pretty cheesy and expensive for a metal marker at in a patio in the middle of nowhere. Arrived Cortez grabbed some lunch and then hit the Conquistador Golf Course. Muni 18 hole course, wide and forgiving, but fairways were a bit dry. I enjoyed the round. Staying at Super 8, clean and remodeled, only $62/night total. Perfect!Read more

    April 19 in the United States

    Drive to Mesa Verde NP visitor center. Signed up for 1:30 park and Balcony House tour with Armac th he NP concessionaire. Drove out to museum, which we liked, checked out Spruce House overlook. Trail down to house closed for season until May. Drove back to Far Views meda-top ruins and walked 1.5 mile trail. Then drove to Fair View Lodge to pickup up afternoon tour. Drove the park with good narration from guide, stopped at several cliff dwelling overlooks. Then give to us to 4pm ranger led tour through Balcony House. Great experience, loved the ruin. Amazing location on Cliff, with huge pueblo type structures. Drive into town and picked up Dominos Puzza for dinner.Read more

    04-20 Mesa Verde Natl Park

    April 20 in the United States

    Weather forecast was cold and chance of rain but we decided to go back to Mesa Verde to re visit all the overlooks. Dropped off clothes fir machinery service and went to the Spruce Tree House & museum. I walked Pictoglyph Trail (2.4 miles). It was overcast and i got snow flurries. Had 4 layers abd clothes and felt fine. Really great walk along csnyon rim. Dropped down steep trail to pictoglyph panel. Fairly large with lots of designs. Trail back took me just under the rim - rougher but really cool view of canyon. Found a couple of small ruin sites tucked in small alcoves. Money Steve at Spruce Tree cafe and we're drove Mesa Top and Balcony House loop stopping at all of the overlooks (some were saw on tour yesterday). Hiked out to Soda Canyon overlook for last look of Balcony House. Stopped at laundry for our clean clothes and then grabbed salad to go with leftover pizza in our room. Also grabbed lunch for tomorrow.Read more
