Tomorrow we leave our little slice of heaven here in Colorado (actually the park is closing for the season) and travel into New Mexico. The weather was great for most of our stay, cool mornings and highs in the 70s, sure beat the 90s and 100s we escaped. We'll be heading down to desert area of Aztec, NM, only about 50 miles but a world away from the San Juan Mountains. We have reservations for a few days to allow us to check out the Aztec Ruins National Monument before continuing west.
Thanks for following along and we'll see you next time from, Hopefully Sunny, New Mexico.

From Animas Forks our tour was almost complete, an easy drive back into Silverton along CR 2 and past some still amazing scenery.
One arriving back in Silverton, it was a leisurely lunch with new friends as we awaited the next leg of our adventure. So stay tuned and we'll wrap up Sheryl's big day out in our next post.

I had been wanting to take our Jeep out to this area for a very long time, however, with much research the question still remained on if a unlifted Jeep Liberty could make it. Now after seeing the trails our Jeep would have no problem, so I may head out there one more time before we leave on Tuesday.
We had a great time, as a matter of fact, such a good time and so much adventure it can't be put into one post, so we will be breaking it up into three. Stay tuned for Part II, Animas Forks Ghost Town.
Thanks for riding along and we'll see you right back here next time.

The route is beyond words to describe it's beauty and definitely one of the most scenic drives in the country. Should you ever find yourself in this part of he country, it is a must do. That being said, it is very steep with many tight turns, not recommended for large RV travel, unless you have a diesel with plenty of power and a exhaust brake.
Thanks for coming along on our adventure and we'll see you right back here next time.

The first view of my elusive prey.
The Weninuche wilderness is approx. 500,000 acres in the southern San Juan Mountains of Colorado. I must say the area is beautiful and very rugged as you would expect. The trail was quite rough and almost did me in, and that was only a 6 or so mile hike. I guess the fact that I haven't really hiked a trail like this one in almost 7 years and just being a tad (or more) out of shape didn't help matters any. However, it was well worth the physical struggle to see such an amazing place!!!
Thanks for taking the time to visit and we'll see you here again.
