Just one picture from yesterday. This was taken from the Durango Burger King's parking lot. I'm so sure! Even in the BK parking lot, it is picturesque!
Okay, let's get real here. We are a married couple just like everybody else, and even on vacation, we have our moments of marital stress. Yesterday we were taking a little drive and I had the map and was giving the Captain driving directions (NEVER a good idea and a perfect recipe for a blow-up). You know it's true!
Of course, he was not listening to me, and he's been doing this the entire trip...I tell him to turn this way or that, and he either completely ignores me or asks really dumb questions like, "What do you mean turn left? Is it a hard left or just a veer in the road?"
WTF? "How the hell should I know!! I've never been here either, but if you need to turn left, you probably should be in the LEFT lane regardless! DUH!"
And he went on and on about whether it was a veer or a hard turn, and I totally lost my shit with him and said, "IT DOESN'T MATTER! Forget it! You have not followed my directions this whole trip! Just drive off the damn cliff for all I care! Don't ask me anything EVER AGAIN! I am really annoyed with you right now! @#$%^&! (Understatement.) I pitched a huge hissy fit and wadded up the map and threw it in the back seat like I was 12 years old.
Ha-ha-ha! It must be the elevation sickness again. It is still sucking the life out of us, by the way. I thought you might enjoy knowing everything is not sunshine and roses every minute. I got over it after a few miles of silence, and everything was fine once again.
We will be on the train to Silverton and back all day today. Hopefully I'll get some great pictures and a little video to share from that trip. Thank goodness the Captain is NOT driving.
