Happy Father’s Day Chad

A Sunday drive after church lead us back to Silverton Colorado.  With only an hour to explore the town after lunch on Thursday, we left with out really getting a feel for the quaint little town.  We visited the shops that we had not yet seen.

For dinner Chad decided on a little place that has been featured on ” Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives” called Thee Pitts Again.

Chad had the Guy Fieri special.

Then we played at the playground by the school and public library and took in the sites all around us.

We had looked at all the shops in town so we decided to drive through the side streets as the houses are pretty cute. That didn’t take long and we weren’t quite ready to head home so we headed up the dirt road towards the mines.

The road up to the mine was so scenic that we decided to continue on up the road to view a little more of “the scenic loop” noted by a sign on the side of the road.

We didn’t do the whole loop because we had no idea how far it was and it must have been big because we did see a sign for Lake City in 30 miles.  It was getting later and this wasn’t the kind if road you would want to be on after dark so we found a wider spot in the road and turned around.

Just before we got into Durango there is a hot spring just bubbling out of the ground on the side of the road.  We had to stop and touch it.

It was not too hot, only slightly warm and was fun to touch and feel.

We watched the sun set over the mountains as we descended out of Durango, a day well spent.
Happy Father’s Day to all Fathers out there especially Chad, Chuck, Paul, Jeremy, Jayson and Great Grandpa Lawhead as well as to many Uncles and great uncles.  We love you guys.
