This is near the Navajo community of Red Mesa. Approaching Cortez I could likewise reckon I was approaching the town by the 300 foot “C” carved into the mountains. Hmmm…
Throughout the res the grazing was good and what look exactly like mustangs had a healthy crop of foals. Saw lots of beautiful red roans, palominos and paints.
The drive along the Dolores River from Cortez north to Telluride was terrific. The aspens are just beginning to leaf out. Made it over 10,000 foot plus Lizard Head Pass uneventfully, thank Dog. The van seems to be holding out okay so far. I’m running much lighter and rebalanced the trailer and may have hit upon a good equation.
Made it! Fest starts Friday with an art walk in the afternoon. I’ve got lots to do tomorrow am and tomorrow work one of the theaters in Mountain Village from 6-midnight, so you probably won’t hear from me tomorrow!
