Wow. Wow. Wow. We haven't turned on the radio or read any books at all. Both of us are in agreement that this is one of the most beautiful drives we've ever seen. The combination of the fall colors, the snowy mountain passes, and the pine trees are causing us to whip out the camera and take way too many pictures that definitely won't capture the magnificence of it all. We've added a ton of new photos to the Drive from Colorado Springs to Cortez album. [It's going to take hours to upload all the photos - there are over 100!]
We should be tired after driving through the mountains for eight hours, but instead we are energized.
