Incidentally, I should plug the southwest corner of Colorado for those of you who are considering a vacation. There are some unbelievable views, especially in the San Juan Mountains (Silverton, where I spent the last three days, sits at 9300 feet right in the middle of the San Juans). Mesa Verde National Park is in the area as well, and is spectacular. If you're into completely silly but somehow compelling locations, this part of Colorado is in the Four Corners region, so you can drive down from Mesa Verde and get the opportunity to be in four states at once. Depending on the time of year you visit, there are opportunities to hike, mountain bike, ski, fish, raft . . . it's pretty much a mecca for outdoor activities. Heck, there are even a couple of reservation casinos in the area if that's your thing. My guess is that if you find your way to this part of Colorado, you won't be disappointed. That's enough shilling -- time to get to bed. I'll catch you all on Saturday (unless something major happens tomorrow and I feel compelled to blog in the evening).
