Paso Robles, CA

The first week in October my wife & I, with my parents, toured wineries in Paso Robles, CA.  We stayed at a local B&B for a few nights.

 

Fall color in the San Juan mountains of Colorado

We hit the peak of fall color on our drive through southwest Colorado's San Juan mountains.  These pics are from Oct 4, on the drive from Durango to Ouray, with most of the pictures between Silverton and Ouray.  The challenge was not finding a good picture, rather choosing from lots of good pictures to find a great picture — no matter where you looked there was tons of color.  The other difficulty was the lighting, due to mostly cloudy conditions, so I had to work hard on the exposure.  I highly recommend this drive in Colorado, and wish we had more time.  Maybe next fall we'll take a trip just for the color, and stay overnight in the town of Ouray.

 

New driveway

When we bought our house last year, the driveway was in pretty bad shape.  After going through one winter trying to shovel the snow off the cracked, uneven, and crumbling driveway, it was time for a new driveway.

The driveway crew showed up Thurs afternoon, and broke-up the old driveway.  They had it all hauled away, and the new driveway prepped for the pour crew, which showed up the next morning.  They had it poured by lunch.  First a video, then pictures.
