Susan and I went to Durango a couple weeks ago to get in one last trip before she started student teaching in the Fall (they start the first week of August! Way to early in the summer I think). We were excited to climb at The Golf Wall and Cascade Canyon, two limestone sport climbing areas.
Nice waterfall and pool right next to the climbing.
Golf wall (looks like choss but climbs really well.). Photo is from mountainproject.com. To get more information about the Golf Wall go here.
After climbing at the Golf Wall we had a lot of the day left so we went to a sweet bread shop in Durango that we had heard about called Bread (tricky name), get directions here, and we went to a brewery and grabbed some food before hitting the road.
The best thing about the drive home was witnessing one of the best sunsets I have seen in quite a while. It was set over the sandstone of the Navajo Nation, east of Kayanta. Beautiful in it's own right. But there was more...there was a thundershower right in front of it and the rain was a beautiful pink, orange color as it came down in a thick curtain and in the opposite end of the sky (to the east) there was a double rainbow. Unbelievable sunset. No photo to show for it but it will always be one of my favorites.
