We passed the Curecanti National Recreation Area on our way to Ouray. The Blue Mesa Reservoir is Colorado's largest body of water.
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.
