Mountain Retreating

At the start of week two in the Southwest we left Red Mesa - all covered in a thick layer of fluffy snow, past Teec Nos Pos and their cool Post Office and Trading Post (where I did end up picking up a 5lb sack of Bluebird Flour) and headed North towards Colorado.

I loved driving past the small cowboy towns and bizarre looking mountains jutting through the snow. We ended up in Durango to pick my brother up at the airport. His flight was nearly six hours delayed so we spent a lot of time in the cute mountain town with their "Polar Express" train and river walks and enormous horse ranches and Bald Eagles hovering over the river. We enjoyed an amazing lunch at the Serious Texas BBQ and had tasty coffee in the local cozy shop.

Finally, after hours of delay and panic that he might be removed from the plane (some people were... two days before Christmas... nice one US Airways) my brother arrived at Durango Airport and we were on our way to the even cuter and cozier mining town of Telluride.
