Million dollar highway is a 70 mile stretch from Ouray through Silverton and ultimately to Durango. We drove from Ouray to Silverton, rode a bus from Silverton to Durango and then a train from Durango back to silverton, then drove ourselves again from Silverton to Ouray onto Colorado Springs. Whew! that was a long sentence :). One view of the blue-mesa river, taken on our way from Salida to Silverton
First off, I apologize because this is a non-food related post. I have been cooking and taking pictures but haven't had the time to sit and write up the blog entries. I first logged in to post some of my living room pictures - covered with packed moving boxes and then I wandered over to Linda's
blog where she had posted some amazing pictures of the rockies. I then changed my mind and decided to post some of my vacation pictures from last month - also of Colorado. Who would have liked to look at pictures of moving boxes, anyway?

The baby gorilla, Umande at the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo in Colorado Springs. Since his mother would not take care of him, there was a care-taker that was there with him all the time to look after him

I will post other pictures as and when I get a chance and I promise, I will return to food blogging as soon as I am done with a little thing called moving!
