As we left Phx there was a big accident on I-17 that held us up a good half hour. The rest of the trip was uneventful, but I did get a couple of pics of the massive two storey high boulder that crashed down onto the road a couple of weeks ago, ten miles west of the town of Dolores. DH was returning to Phx the following day and had to detour through Utah.
This doesn't begin to describe the immensity but the best I could do as we drove by.
Matthew was a great passenger, no complaining, just a happy child.
Nova is loving it, such an intrepid little explorer, though she needs a good brushing after.

It's cool here at 9,000 ft elevation, 34 degrees in the morning and mostly 60's during the day.
A visit to Ouray would not be complete without stopping in at Mouse's Chocolates for a treat. All hand made in the store, unending gourmet choices of chocolates and baked sweets plus wonderful beverages including a hot caramel apple cider! Make sure you try a "Scrap Cookie", oh my!
Ouray is a small town with old world charm
