(warning: this post contains lots of pictures...i went a little crazy).
dave and i headed down to durango in southern colorado the last weekend in may for a little vacation.
on the roaddave attended college down in durango and it was fun to have him show me around campus and the town.
me in front of the clocktower on campus. all of the building were made of beautiful sandstone
we even snuck into dave's freshman dorm and found his room
we were officially the first people to sleep in the cub
ever since i met dave i have heard about "mama's boy," dave's favorite italian restaurant. i finally got to try it and it was delicious.
there are a couple really old, beautiful hotels on main street. this was an old elevator in one of them. i thought it was so cute and dave was obviously excited about it
fun, big bear
on saturday we started out our day at the farmer's market. i loved it...i felt like we were locals (although all that went out the window when i pulled out the camera for a picture). we had an amazing breakfast tamale, burrito and pastry (yes, lots of good food). i felt like we were there with the most popular people in town. marc and marty knew everyone!
after the farmer's market we headed to telluride, a gorgeous town a few hours away (trivia: tom cruise and katie holmes spend the holidays in telluride, but they weren't there that day). on the way there we saw 2 things that made my day:
while we were driving along we ran into a cow "roadblock." they were just taking their time, crossing the street. i loved seeing them up close. especially the little "mooers!"
the other best thing was the house we drove by that randomly had a camel (i told you marc was the best tour guide. he knew all the hot spots). who would expect to see a camel in southern colorado?!
i loved telluride! we rode the gondola into town (that is telluride down below)
we wandered around the town, ate at a cute little place called "maggie's" (and met maggie's husband), looked at the little shops
and got ice cream at "the sweet life" (featured on rachel ray's show and visited by jennifer love hewitt). a totally cute sweet shop with amazing ice cream
we had a great weekend enjoying a beautiful part of our state and spending time with marc and marty. thanks again for your hospitality guys!
