color drive: ridgway to telluride

Last weekend we went on a drive to see all the glorious colors that fall brings to Colorado each year.  We were so excited to see the color change this year that we actually set out on this same drive two weeks ago but the colors had not quite emerged yet.  The first two pictures are from that adventure.  We took Highway 62 that runs in between Ridgway and Telluride.  If you live in Colorado or are visiting and have never taken this drive then you must add it to your list of things to do.  Dallas Divide is such a stunner.  I feel like this drive represents Colorado very well with the amazing colors and snow capped peaks.  Plus you can see where Ralph Lauren's ranch is. It is quite impressive.  Another added bonus is ending up in Telluride.  It is definitely one of my favorite mountain towns.  Their gondola is free so you easily explore the Mountain Village and the town itself.  It is such a neat and fun place to hang out, I highly recommend visiting!
