Exploring Middle Mountain, San Juan N.F. Colorado

 We made it into Vallecito (18 miles East of Durango) on Tuesday and yesterday headed into the San Juan National Forest. Todays adventure was to explore the Middle Mountain Trail, the Forest Service Road climbs 13 miles into the mountains with some pretty good elevation gains and amazing views.

 Aspin Stand
 Mountains to the West
 High mountain meadow
 Wild Flowers along the trail
 East Mountains
High mountain stream
We have really been enjoying our time here in Vallecito, the weather is great (ok maybe a little cool in the mornings) we awoke to 38 degrees this morning. That being said, we'll take highs in the 70s all day long compared to the hot August days at the lower elevations!!!
That's it for todays adventure, we'll see you again soon from the Colorado Mountains!!!
