We are now camped at Ridgway State Park; things are quite different here. We're over 2,000 feet lower; the temperatures are much warmer. We will most likely have to run the air conditioner every day; last night it didn't cool down until 9pm. I"m at Cimarron Books and Coffee in Ridgway, using their free WiFi - again, I'm out of AT&T coverage to use my iPhone's internet and related apps. I think they're going to get to know me pretty well the next 12 days!
We plan to go to Ouray, Silverton, Owl Creek Pass, and a few other places while we're here. Don can fish the Uncompahgre River by walking 30 yards from our campsite. So I can leave him there while I come to town.
