This was the best mini vacation ever. We drove through the Sand Dunes, Pagosa Springs, Durango, Silverton, Ouray, Montrose, Gunnison and back up through Salida to the Springs. We stopped about a 100 times  to take videos and explore. We saw so many gorgeous views it felt like we were in a movie. Right before we left we bought a tripod so we didn't have to but the camera on top of the car. We kind of got carried away with finally getting pictures together and making videos. Austin is super excited to take pictures now which made my heart skip..I've been waiting for that day to come my whole life! We used the tripod so much barley got any pictures of the mountains without us in it but that's what iPhones are for right? ha! I promise I wont overwhelm you with us photos but goodness I live for these moments.
