Default Durango

The Fam went down to Durango for a long weekend to attend a wedding. We stayed at the Resort and the colors were awesome down there!

On the way back I got pulled over by a trooper north of monte vista for not having a front plate. He was pretty cool about it and even said "This is a nice Land Cruiser" and bid us farewell.

The Cruiser got 16.3 mpg on the way back which I thought was pretty decent esp hammering wolf creek, poncha pass and kenosha fully loaded. Too bad I need to fix the 401 code too... lol

Where was your front plate??

Color looks great down there. Mostly gone in South Park when we were out on the 40's Run.

x2. I was disappointed at the lack of color on Kenosha Pass. Not sure if we missed it by a week or two, or if it was just a bad year on this side of the state.

Wish I'd know you were down here but we spent most of the time in the hospital this weekend

Here is a shot today of the colors from our deck. We are almost in the prime around here
