Vacation Day 3 - Ophir Pass to Telluride

We had a long day again on day 3 of our Ouray family adventure! We started out in a traffic jam on the million dollar highway on our way to the Ophir Pass cutoff. We sat on the highway for about 15 minutes waiting for the road construction to clear. We headed over the short pass and had a great time playing on the snow at the top. Justin used his jacket as a sled and then we all had to try! It was nice and cool at the top! We stopped for pictures in the forest on the way down. Then we had lunch at our traditional spot in Telluride...Baked in Telluride. The pizza and pastries were delicious as usual! After lunch we headed over to the Bridal Veil Falls lookout for more pictures. The waterfall was beautiful and very full due to all the snow! Then some of the crew headed back to Ouray while the rest of us decided to go up the gondola to Mountain Village. It was beautiful at the top and we looked around the village for a while. Then we happened upon a rock climbing wall and again, we all had to take a turn...even Aunt Kathie :) Justin and Caleb made it all the way to the top. I got scared about 2 feet off the ground and Justin had to rescue me. Then we got ice cream and headed back to Ouray.

Ah, a photo of the Preacher back when he had his fedora.

Y'all do look alike.

Mmm. Baked in Telluride. Good food and better desserts.

Speaking of desserts, I like Cookie and the little cookies.

Looks like so much fun! I told Zach that we are making sure we are there next time! I have yet to go on a Walker trip to Colorado
