After basking in the glory of the ancient ancestors at Mesa Verde National Park, John and I started a 12-hour trek home to Dallas, TX. The drive included a quick yet delightful lunch stop at The Diamond Belle Saloon in Durango, Colorado. After we'd washed down our colossal burgers with a local brew, we needed to get our legs moving before we hit the road again.
We walked around this beautiful ski town and window shopped in the local store fronts. There had been some bike races a few hours before we arrived, so the streets were filled with bicycles. It was nice to explore the bustling town before we hopped back in the car to finish our journey home.
