Nineteen hundred miles in one long weekend was a lot of miles even for Storm and me, but that’s what it takes to make it from Albuquerque to Nicole and David’s wedding in Teton Village and back to Albuquerque by Monday. On an ordinary day the ride north is stunning, but we experience a special treat this time as the aspens and other hardwoods are decked out in their most colorful autumn finery.
I do not get many pictures (darn it) because Storm was on a “tight schedule” that did not include “stopping at every overlook” to take a decent picture :-). While Storm has mastered shooting from a moving car, my blurred photos shot from the car window are always disappointing to me so I made the following video (also shot from a car window and possibly also blurry) to give you a chance to virtually enjoy the winding vibrant ride back down the Million Dollar highway to Durango. Please note – we are only traveling about 25 miles an hour. I sped the video up (4 times faster) so that you could see more of the ride in less time. And having told you that, I still think that the truck driver at the beginning of the video is awesome at handling the curves and the white car – NOT!
