My photo for the last day of 2008 is actually not in Telluride, but I just had to share it. This is the Delicate Arch at Arches National Park in Moab, Utah. Moab is only a 2 hour drive from Telluride, and is a completely different place, but equally magical and beautiful. We managed to hike to the Delicate Arch this week despite the icy and snowpacked trail. It was a 27 degree day and was so interesting to see again because the last time we hiked up to the Arch it was 100 degrees in the beginning of summer. Someone should definitely start a Moab Daily Photo. The views from town, Arches and at Canyonlands National Park are breathtaking and surreal. The mountains you can see are the La Sal Mountains, which I have shown from the ski runs in previous photos. Arches is on the other side of these mountains from Telluride.
I've realized how difficult posting a daily photo in your hometown can be, especially since our hometown is so small. Sometimes it's fun to share views in the surrounding area. Here's to 2009 and 365 more photos!! Happy New Year to everyone!!
