This is my 700th post!! We have had lots of cloud cover this week with so much rain that many areas have had flood watches and there have been a few mudslides across the highway. I took this near the nature center that is close to the St. Sophia gondola station. Just right of center you can see the airport landing strip and the shadowy mountains in the distance above it are the La Sal Mountains near Moab, Utah.
Also I was very excited yesterday to see my first bear since living here! They come into town quite often but I hadn't seen one in the three years that we have lived in Telluride. I wasn't close enough to get a photo, but my friend got this picture of two bears on the ski run the other night. I'm pretty sure the one I saw yesterday was the dark brown one at the bottom. They are fun to watch as long as they stay up there on the ski run and stay out of town! Bears try to open the trash cans to eat whatever they can find.
