Mesa Verde road trip: Highlights

I've promised a post on our vacation, but there has been so much else to blog about it that I just haven't gotten to it. It's not because the trip wasn't great, though — in fact, it was downright incredible. I've just been too busy catching up from it to dwell much on the experience.

We were gone for 5 days. The first day we drove to Durango, where we stayed the next three nights. We visited Mesa Verde on days 2 and 3. On day 4, we drove partway home and spent the night in Aspen, with a slight detour to visit the Black Canyon on our way. On day 5 we briefly visited Maroon Bells, but it was too cold to hike, so we drove home.

There is too much to fit into one post without depriving you of all the best parts and pictures, so I'll use this post as an introduction and include links to each post as I publish them. I'll publish a vacation post each morning, and publish the day's normal post later in the day. Stay tuned for lots of bloggery on Pony Tales Blog!
