Teresa has never been on the Million Dollar Highway in Colorado. So this morning we headed out to drive it and take lots of photos along the way!! 2 large dogs, 1 child, and 3 adults in a dually truck....of course we can make it work :)
Colorado is probably some of the most beautiful land I have ever seen!!
Making a pit stop to stretch our legs and take some pictures. Garrett was doing some exploring of his own....
Makes me so nervous!! He has no fear. Always making sure he doesn't get too close to the edge!!
LOL, tired pups and hungry child.....
Lots of waterfalls from the runoff from the snow. I bet that water is COLD!!
The little town of Silverton.
You can't see them in this picture but there were actually people kayaking in the water down there. That water was flowing pretty quickly!!
Coming down the mountain. Look at all the vibrant colors!!
We stopped in Silverton for lunch and ate at the Kendall Mountain Cafe. I had the Reuben and it was soooo yummy!! Definitely would eat here again.
Aren't the decorations on the wall so cool!! We sat at that back table and really enjoyed looking at everything they had on their walls!!
Garrett saw this trolley on the way out and was so intrigued by it.
This picture was taken looking through the town from where the cafe was located. These residents sure do have an awesome view!!
I told Garrett next time we come he can do the rocks and pan for treasure. It was a really cold day today and we didn't have a lot of time. He picked out the gun at one of the local stores. He sure played with that for the rest of the day!!
Make sure you read the signs on the bathroom. Some of them are so funny!!
Garrett searching for animals up on the mountain.
We always take time to stop and smell the flowers :)
He would have tried to ride that bike if I would have let him.....
Garrett tried gun fighting with me and lost, LOL :)
Bahaha, Teresa and her future establishment she plans on owning ;)
Garrett is ready for a gun fight!!
It was time to get back on the road. We made a turn off the main road to check out some campgrounds. Look at how beautiful this area is!!
While Tim was out taking pictures he got this shot of Garrett standing out of our sunroof. I swear this kid uses the sunroof more than anyone else, LOL!!
Garrett is shooting the bad guy, aka Dad !!
Back on our way. Stopping every so often to take a picture.
Then we stopped to explore some. We had this cave right across from us!! Hmm I wonder if there are bear in there.....
We saw so many caves!!
Teresa, Garrett, and Tim. Do you see the cave just to the left of them?
Not too close to the edge.....trying to get that perfect shot!!
I love this shot of Teresa. It really gives a great glimpse of someone just taking it all in. So much beauty!!
Garrett was having fun exploring on his own!!
This was me walking towards them.

Garrett was telling me about the cave down there.
Nice family picture!!
What is under here???
What a poopy picture ;) We found either deer or elk poop while out exploring.
Back on the road again!!
I love this pic so much!! Chloe's ear is so awesome!!
Nap time for the dogs!!
We went through several tunnels.
We stopped here at this bridge and was able to watch the waterfalls. This area is right before you get into Ouray. So pretty!!
Love this little boy!! We were patiently waiting for Dad and Teresa to get done taking pictures :)
I mustache you a question....LOL!!
Apparently it happens a lot ;)
Another tunnel on our way to Ouray!!
We can finally see Ouray!! Cute little mountain town!!
Looks like I'm not the only one that takes pictures of people taking pictures, LOL!!
We finally made it into Ouray and decided to stop at BonTon's to have dinner. It was soooo good!!
Garrett and I headed back outside after dinner while Tim and Teresa waited for the checks. This way he could run for a little bit before we headed back home.
The camouflage outfit he got from Grandma Beverly make him hard to see ;)
Gosh it's so beautiful here! One of the creeks we saw on our way home.
We also saw a herd of deer. So awesome!!
One last picture to end our day. Was such an awesome and fun day!! We saw lots of cool things and got some ideas on where to go tent camping.
