I decided to trade my truck in for a bigger, 3/4 ton, and had to drive to Denver to pick it up.

On the way there I took Highway 160 East to 285 North. The most beautiful part of this drive was the Wolf Creek Pass area between Pagosa Springs and Del Norte. The whole drive was amazing though.

The new truck is almost identical to the old one, just a lot bigger

In Denver I stayed with an old friend from high school and we hung out Friday night.

The next morning I drove back and took a different route. I took 285 South to Poncha Springs and then took highway 50 West to Gunnison and over to Montrose. Then I took 550 South to Ridgway and there got on the San Juan Skyway and took that all the way to Cortez. This entire drive was gorgeous, especially the areas around Gunnison.
