DRIVE from TELLURIDE to DILLON, CO via Vail
Yesterday, A. Paul & I took our final ski runs of our trip. The day was beautiful and the snow was perfect. In the evening we listened to Elephant Revival, a neo acoustic group, perform live at the historic Sheriden Opera House.
This morning, we said our farewell to Telluride and headed northeast to Dillon, CO via Vail. The drive alternated between melting snow passes and fields thawing in the spring sun. We passed ranches, coal mines, wildlife grazing and rivers that were beginning to fill from snow melt, eventually our drive rose to 10,000 feet elevation afforded spectacular vistas. Boulders precariously lie along the roadside reminding us of the delicate balance of mankind and nature. The final drive onto I-70, led us through a maze of tunnels and passages carved through and around the Rocky Mountains before passing through Vail then onto Dillon for the night.
Tomorrow, we head to Nebraska, inching one day at a time home to Cape Cod. The next few days will be long driving days in an effort to reach MA by next weekend. I will continue to post photo images of the drive back but our art coverage will be limited as we come to the close of our Art Tour Across America. When we reach back home I will make one last post to provide closing photos and comments. Until then I leave you with an extensive slideshow of today's drive.
