We arrived in Durango just as the Fall color change was beginning. The road up to Silverton and Ouray climbs a couple of thousand feet, so the colors were coming into full brilliance, and the mountains were awash with Aspens changing from lime green to bright golden yellow and some into glowing orange. I had been looking forward to this trip, but now I was there, and it was time to paint…something! I took a turn in the road onto a rough dirt track. and saw how I would spend the next couple of hours.
