I posted a photo from 1982 back a few months ago and thought I would try to find the same spot to re-create it in 2009. My dad couldn't remember exactly where he was when he took the old photo, but I tried to get as close to the spot as I could. I was trying to use Ajax Peak and the elementary school as focus points, but the elementary school is hidden by trees now! So I was somewhere around the area where I stood when I was 10 and visiting Telluride on a family vacation.
It looks like we visited on a cloudy and overcast day in 1982, and this week the sky has been overcast and very hazy due to the wildfires in California.
