Saintgrizzly, Box Canyon, Ouray, 1978
|[ Sizes: Orig | Small | Thumb ]|
Our first trip to the San Juans together was in late May of 1978. Vern owned a Subaru sedan which barely got us to Ouray. Our first San Juan experience together was a visit to Box Canyon Falls during a major snow storm that buried the region in two feet of snow. The same storm dumped 8 inches in Denver. This has always been one of my favorite photos of Vern. We would spend the afternoon on a remote hilltop, waiting for the clouds to part and give us our first glimpse of the mighty Mount Sneffels coated in snow. And they did.
