It was a good run.
But, as the saying goes – all good things must come to an end. And so it was that our month long tour of Utah’s five national parks concluded this weekend.
With temperatures beginning to flirt with mid/upper 80’s (Fahrenheit), it was time to find higher ground and the accompanying cooler temperatures.
Scanning our options, it quickly became apparent that Durango (Colorado) would serve as the perfect location to sit tight for the next two weeks: the drive from Moab would be easy, organic/natural grocers are plentiful – as are craft brewers and mountain bike trails. Finally, settling into a picturesque mountainside site would be simple enough.
Today I was able to confirm that the local network of mountain bike trails will keep me occupied for days.
