Okay its official. I am doing one of my week-long exploring trips to Colorado next year around April/May. I have been obsessing over Colorado the last year and just going to fly into Denver, rent an SUV, and explore the state for a week, jumping from campground to campground if I can, otherwise hitting whatever I can find at the end of each day.

Been hitting Google Street View checking out random places and I just are amazed at what I am finding.

Take Ouray for example, a town like 5 blocks by 6 blocks in the mountains:

https://www.google.com/maps/@38.0228855,-107.6715225,3a,75y,196.91h,82.56t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1szocUknnSC8tjMqXdUdTPtg!2e0!7i13312!8i6656

I have no idea what these people do for work.

Ouray is on the Million Dollar Highway, so miles and miles of this:

https://www.google.com/maps/@38.0000628,-107.6611669,3a,75y,134.75h,92.43t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1sOOSAlb4uBTWkyexX6fo0cg!2e0!7i13312!8i6656

Telluride, which might be a touristy place as I think skiing is popular in the area, but another tiny town:

https://www.google.com/maps/@37.9377241,-107.8129009,3a,75y,112.33h,85.58t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1s39PkHRM02oK8BmvmbFLkvQ!2e0!7i13312!8i6656

I would like to sit on this spot for a few hours, or one like it, which there seem to be hundreds:

for gods sake!

essentially wherever the least amount of people are the better.

Honestly if you just zoom in on Colorado itself, and click any of the capture spots off any of the roads, I think you will be impressed.

Wasn't sure I ever saw myself being interested in going to Hawaii, but after those pictures, maybe.

My boys at the top of Mam Tor in the Derbyshire High Peaks over Castleton today ...



And here my boys and Ruth climb down from the top on a shortcut I found. I went ahead to catch them if they fell!

Looks like they're having too much fun!

Do they have trees there? :icon_wink:

Down at the bottom, yes. The Norman Castle of Peveril by the town is now in the trees. I could see it through binoculars from the top.
