Still just enjoying the mountains

We have been just sitting around enjoying the weather in Dolores while Dan was out pulling his elk from the mountain.  He got what they call a 6x6 or 6by6.  Huge antlers!

A quick trip to Telluride and Dan’s hunting area

We took a short trip up the mountain to Telluride and then to Dan’s hunting area.  The colors are really about gone but there are still pops of gold all over the mountains.  And Telluride is still there and still a cute town.
