As we often do these days, we arrived a day early (April 15, 2017) for our archaeological survey trip near Cortez, Colorado. The extra time gives us an opportunity to get acclimatized to the location (we’re at 6500 feet) and look around the neighborhood a bit.
We spent the afternoon walking near the Animas River (one of our all-time favorites!) that flows through Durango. It was a beautiful spring day, and we had plenty of company (walkers, joggers, bikers, kayakers) along the way.
