Telluride Goes To Moab

With so much variety in Telluride, it's easy to forget how much there is to do within a few hours' drive in any direction. Saturday, January 23, Damon Demas and I took an overnight trip to Moab and Arches National Park to show our visiting Chilean friend, Andres Correa, another side of our part of the country.

We got a leisurely start on Sunday, ignored the NFL conference playoffs, and spent most of the day in Arches. After exploring several of the areas close to the road, we drove out to Devil's Garden at the north end of the park and took a several hour hike, mostly in snow, out to Double O Arch.

It was a great outing, only about 2 1/2 hours away by car, on a beautiful sunny winter day. We missed another day of powder skiing at home, but had a wonderful hike, a lot of photographs, and more great memories. To top it all off, as we came up toward Norwood on the way home, Lone Cone emerged out of the wind-blown clouds, shining in the late afternoon sun.
