Anyway, we started yesterday with a brief foray into the hills to attend a dog harness class. The clouds came in by the time we got there, so the white dogs blended in with the snowbanks. Still, it was a good turnout and it quickened the eagerness for the La Plata Paw event, which will be mushing in Mancos on Feb. 13 and 14.
Very Goodnight was there with her digs and she has reminded us that Rick and Kate St. Onge, who are moving (maybe this year) from the Salt Lake City area to Mancos, are presently in the Wyoming Stage Race ... the biggie of stage racing, with a $10,000 first prize. Kate is running third at the end of the first stage, so we're rooting for her! Three of the four leaders have mushed in Mancos!
So anyway, we went on to Durango to pick up Sandy's photos from the Four Corners Commission show at the Durango Art Center, then sampled a little of the flavor of Snowdown, which neither of us have ever attended. The picture shows some of the participants assembled at the start of an event in the Main Mall ... remember, this was January 30, with deep snowbanks everywhere outside!
We went to see the 3D version of "Avatar" - interesting. I was actually more enthused about the 3D "Shrek" previews.
And we capped the evening off with a glimpse of beautiful sunset glow on the La Platas. 'Tis a beautiful land we live in. tv
