      Looks like an awesome trip and the pictures look good; thanks for sharing. I wish I had the time to do a similar trip, but I don't see that happening anytime soon.

Even in May you might have needed the snow tires with the route you picked. I've seen a foot of snow fall on Coal Bank Pass north of Durango the Friday of Memorial Weekend closing the road just a few years ago.
      Nice. Yeah it's fun when you recognize spots along the way (always do that myself when people drive up the CA coast) and it's interesting where people decide to stop. It's a balancing act between stopping for photos and actually getting to your destination at a decent time.

      Awesome pictures, great trip.
      So that's what place is. We did a quick search on the map and didn't see it...is it new? She never drives on that road (usually takes Pena) so it was interesting for her too. That whole area was just surreal with how quiet and desolate it was. If someone blindfolded you and dropped you off there at night, you'd think you're thousands of miles from civilization.

      I saw new houses being built and seems like that entire area will be developed before you know it.

      Some photos don't show up at work so I didn't know you posted pics till hushy mentioned it.

      How did you like Ouray? Typical small town? Worth spending a night?

      I thought it was weird that only the main road was paved and the others were gravel.

      I visited Ouray a few years ago. This picture really takes me back.

      We went to a brewpub/restaurant which I believe is right about in the middle of the picture. We sat at an outdoor seating area which happened to be on the 2nd floor or roof. We had a great lunch and beer and were treated to quite a show when a random thunderstorm came roaring down the canyon. Weather went from sunny and warm to cold and dark in no time. It was incredible to see this storm roll in.

      OP, thanks for posting and stirring my memories.

      What he said. I am still shooting with a 12 year old Nikon D300. It is only 6MP but it takes excellent pictures and I can easily print them up to 11x14 if I want. I don't do any post processing but only because I never have and don't know where to start. Most of my shots are taken using Auto or Program mode if I want to force the flash on.

      And hey - at least you aren't wasting film while you learn! When I first started I would have to drop off my rolls, wait to pick them up, and then realize I didn't get the shot. Digital is instant gratification and you can take several shots of the same scene until you feel like you captured it.

      Nice shots, thanks for posting them up. We've done a number of Colorado/Utah/Four Corners trips, and these shots bring back great memories. We really enjoyed Durango and Gunnison, FTR. The last time we were back in Durango, though, you could tell how much more it was built up and developed from a decade before. Big box stores, dealerships, etc. Glad we saw it before it changed.

      They are building parking lots and housing south of the airport like weeds. Starting in the mid to high $400k's and you too could have your very own 3,000SF house on a 3,100SF lot! Development at DIA in particular and the Denver area in general is through the roof right now. The Gaylord project is new, and allegedly the convention center is booked out solid for the next few years. The electrical contractor I run work for at the airport is also part of that project (good info )

      We camped in Ouray for three nights. It was definitely worth it. We hiked to a few waterfalls, checked out the town, did a mine tour, and hit up some hot springs. The paved main road and gravel side roads is pretty typical of mountain towns.

      Ouray might have a prettier backdrop, but we all preferred the town of Telluride. Everything is very upscale and nice, while keeping the historical look and feel of the town. The hike to Bridal Veil Falls was amazing too. Luckily our Ouray campsite was in a good location to easily travel between both towns.

      If I had an extra day, I definitely would've checked out Telluride. I hadn't heard of it prior to the Grand Tour visiting it and looked like a cool place. Not surprised it's more upscale given the ski resort.

      I fly a bunch for work and agree, inexplicably they really do work. Have never had any issue with motion sickness regardless of how much turbulence we encounter. They are even comfortable enough to wear on long haul trans-oceanic flights without any irritation. Bought them for under $10 at Walgreens and now they are part of my regular travel kit.

      Very nice photos OP. May I ask what kind of camera you use? I like photography, but am verrry VERRRRRY new to the whole ordeal. So like almost zero knowledge and experience thus far.

      He already answered that in this thread, but the answer is not going to be useful to you anyway. You might compare his camera to a 911 GT3. If you don't know how to drive well, a GT3 is barely going to get you around an autocross course faster than a Miata. If you are very new to photography, a $3k DSLR body probably isn't going to produce any better results than your iPhone--in fact, it will likely be the other way around.

      Are you trying to purchase your first DSLR? That's a completely different topic, one that should also be accompanied by a discussion about lenses as well.

      And don't forget to study the photos themselves. Why are we all kiznarsh fans? Note the rich, clean tones. Saturation is high, but never ridiculous. Also notice the variety of compositions and subject matter that keeps you moving through the thread. Once you figure out what you're looking for, you have something to think about and aim for.

      I always say that you should start in photography by trying to copy your favorite photos. You'll fail at copying, but you'll still create something and learn a lot in the process
