I love the San Juans. Mindy and I rolled up to Red Mountain Pass last night at 1AM and slept at the 11,000 ft pass. We awoke on the morning of the 4th and drove into Silverton. We toured the local shops and then watched the always-entertaining 4th of July parade. Afterwards we hooked up with our friends Paul and Becky and got to see their beautiful new 10-day old baby.
Next, Mindy and I headed north out of town up to Velocity Basin and climbed Velocity Peak. It was absolutely perfect! Check out some pics here, and a couple of movies below:
