There's a beautiful river in southwest Colorado called the Dolores River. It runs by a great town called Dolores. The folks in Dolores throw a fun festival every year by the river and we were fortunate enough to be invited to participate in the festivities. Good music, river rides, and some great giveaways made for a fun day. Thanks to Gareth at Osprey Packs for the membership promotion. Our favorite booth was Ranger Rick Ryan's Leave No Trace river camp. Rick's been a Leave No Trace coordinator with the BLM for a long time and he's an expert on the river. Lastly, thank you to Alex and Chris for taking such good care of us while we were in town. We hope to come back again sometime.
Now we're way up in Telluride. We just did an awareness workshop at Telluride Sports and we'll take a short hike tomorrow before we head back down to Durango to talk to some horse packers during their trainer course.
