Our last day in Colorado. It's been a different trip than our usual road trip to the Rockies. Last year we traveled all over, visiting the national park and climbing up into the mountains, and chasing fall colors. This year we stayed close, spending time with family and exploring Montrose.
This morning we said our goodbyes and headed out, but first we took a detour through town to find a geocache we couldn't do yesterday. The entire twisty road down along the Uncompahgre River was being worked on, and the road crew was camped out right by the cache. It wasn't a total loss... we parked right next to an old homesteader's log cabin, still standing with a lushly growing sod roof.
