Quick Update

I'll be back home tomorrow, and plan on resuming a regular blogging schedule starting on Saturday. Thanks for your patience with my downtime -- I could have blogged, but I would have been squeezing it into some pretty narrow windows of opportunity, so the quality would have been worse than normal (feel free to take potshots on the quality of my content -- I pretty much opened the door on that one).

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).

    I love Colorado.

    Somehow, just knowing it's out there makes the -40 below-plus-windchill-trying-to-gas-up-the-car-before-freezing-to-death-while-pretending-not-to-notice-the-cold-in-front-of-out-of-towne seem more bearable/

    (that's "out-of-towners more bearable)

    Cripes my comments suck.

    I got to visit Silverton and Mesa Verde in the summer of 2004. It was a wonderful trip, and not as crowded as some of the other National Parks/tourist areas. I'd recommend it to anyone who loves the outdoors.

    Throw in Hovenweep, Canyon of the Ancients and Great Sand Dunes and and you have a great historical, geological trip.
