Khristina And Glen Are Here!

They arrived Sunday afternoon and we stopped in at Colorado Boy Brewery to pick up pizzas before driving up the mountain.
Walt and Glen enjoyed a brew or two while we waited for our dinner..........and we all enjoyed the yummy pizza..........
thin  hand tossed crusts, and exotic toppings.
This one is called Rustica, can't remember the name of the one with Arugula but they were both very good! They also make a dessert pizza, two thin crusts sandwiched with Nutella!
Earlier that day we had stopped in at my friends' small farm just outside Montrose, Gale has chickens that lay the prettiest green and blue eggs.
 We caught this hen in the act of laying, she looks a little peeved or is she just embarrassed?
Here are a few more of the hens. We had these delicious free range, organic eggs scrambled for breakfast on Monday morning, the yolks are so orange and the eggs actually taste the way they should!
Aren't they beautiful?
After brekkie [Aus. for breakfast!] Monday we drove into Ouray, and stopped at Mouse's Chocolates of course.......
they make a hot apple cider with home made caramel and cream, simply divine daaahling, I brought home a jar of the caramel, it's great for Sticky Date Pudding!

We couldn't leave without  trying a few of these hand made truffles.........
                                  turkey truffles!
Here Khristina is about to tuck into a "Scrap cookie".........
    In case you are wondering what these are, the explanation is below!
Thence over the Million Dollar Highway to Silverton, the town is pretty much closed up though some places will re-open for ski season next month.
Like other old Colorado towns they have a vintage operational bank building with original fittings.............
 shades of the old days!
Here is the original jail, now a thrift store.
 This is the steam engine that runs between Silverton and Durango, we rode it down and back a few years ago in a terrific snow storm, that was fun!
