Another Colorado trip in the bag. Each time is a little different. I lucked out on trading some photo work for a 5 day back country tour of the Colorado Trail with Rim Tours. I brought along my friend Jenny to experience the trip through some fresh eyes. Jenny has hardly been over the NC state line.. so a cross country road trip was a leap.
We met up with a mostly Colorado gang in a parking lot in Durango, then headed up a few thousand feet to start the trip on Engineer pass. Weather was perfect. Sky was cobalt blue. The clouds were puffy but they held their rain. The crew was hilarious and the gang at Rim Tours are amazing.
We ended up the road trip by cruising through Franklin, NC right about the time of the solar eclipse... then sitting in traffic for the next 4 hours! But no complaints!
And then to be in the sweet spot back in NC for the solar eclipse!
So. there was a small price to pay for all this magic.
