The pictures don't capture how grand and surreal this place is. Hope you enjoy them anyway. It is truly a magnificent destination. I recommend staying in Montrose. You'll find good food and reasonable lodging.

It's amazing how the landscape of Colorado seems to constantly change as you're traveling through the state.
As we're leaving the Curecanti area, we can see the San Juan mountains ahead. I'm like a little kid again when we start to get closer to the mountains. I just can't wait. This is where I feel most at home.

We tried to do quite a bit of hiking. We took a great, small hike to a gorgeous waterfall called Cascade Falls. The pic below is the trail head. I'm looking away from the trail and back into town.
After looking at the pics again, I'm ready to go back. I miss the mountains.

We did get to have a meet and great with the vocalists back stage courtesy of PBS. These young musicians were so warm and welcoming. It made me enjoy the concert that much more.

Check out Queztal's website
In the middle of the concert - the clouds started building then the sky opened up. What a downpour. Then, as with most of our rains, we were treated to a beautiful rainbow when the clouds moved on
The next concert in the World Music Series will be on la fanfare du Belgistan on July 17.
Hope to see you there!

Check out the goods! We got everything you see here for $10. Asparagus, new potatoes, red bell peppers, green bell peppers, anaheim peppers, onions, tomatoes, acorn squash, zucchini, cucumber - Mmm!
I encourage everyone to eat and buy locally - or better yet - plant a garden. The food you eat will be more nutritious, and you will decrease your carbon footprint.
And...the dishes you make using your fresh produce will be beyond yummy!! Check out my husband's pico. It was fantastic!

I love this time of year. I can't wait to have flowers in the yard! I did add salvia last year and two honeysuckle bushes this year. I would like to eventually add some rose bushes. I have the perfect spot for them. The clematis vines are full of buds. I will definitely post pictures of them when they start blooming. They are really fantastic. What are some of your favorite flowers to grow?
