Sunday was another early morning for us. After breaking down camp we were quickly on our way to Black Bear Pass.

Since we got an early start, we saw no one else on the trail and were in Telluride in about 1.5 hours. We parked and took a walk through town. After getting a little exercise we started up Imogene Pass.

Imogene Pass. As usual, it was raining and snowing when we got to the pass. I have been up to Imogene Pass a number of times, and everytime it seems to snow on me.

Once we reached Ouray, Jan and I grabbed some lunch at Goldbelt Bar & Grill before parting ways. I headed back home to Grand Junction and he continued his trip by heading to Durango. It was a nice relaxing weekend.
