My in-laws planned and invited us to a week-long vacation in Durango, Colorado. I have been to many parts of Colorado, but never the southwest part. It was beautiful! This picture is in New Mexico, north of Albuquerque.
On the way up, we stopped at Capulin Volcano in northwest New Mexico and hiked to the crater.
We also stopped at the Continental Divide and did a quick mile hike.
Our first day in Durango was spent exploring the fish hatchery:
...and playing in the beautiful local parks:
The next morning we pulled camp and drove the 12.5 hours back to Oklahoma. It wasn't a super-fun trip, since the only stops were gas, potty and food, but I got a lot of knitting done on Elijah's Spider-Man blanket!
