u is for

uncompahgre national forest.

in the mid 70s, when i was a wild and wooly girl, it was my great fortune to live for 2 years in silverton colorado. i wouldn't trade those 2 years for all the gold on earth. every day i'd look out my window and think, i cannot believe i live here.

just up the san juan skyway from silverton is the uncompahgre national forest.


takes your breath away.

Oh my, I want to move there. Maybe that's where the FT retirement home should be?

Nice photos! It truly is a gorgeous place - DH took lots of summer hikes near there. I wonder if it has changed at all now with the ski resort?

Looks like home :-)

I guess I needed your picture and kind email to remind me that I am living in a wonderful place even though my first-born may be taking an engineering job in Virginia :-(

Did you ever get to go on the Million Dollar Highway? BTW, no more aspen now. We had eight inches of snow last night!

Egads THOSE are stunning photos - absolutely stunning. I love Silverton - DH and I spent a driving tour for 2 weeks in Colorado several years ago when he was interviewing for his PhD and that was one of our favorite towns.
