Excellent TR and great pics. We were there just a few days before you. Unfortunately we could not take our Jeep on our trip. I have to get a bigger truck so I can tow my jeep. The truck goes lots of places but Jeeps go pretty much anywhere.

Don and Nemo,
I NEVER get tired of the San Juan mountainscapes. An absolute treat to the eye and the soul. I'm glad someone went there this summer.
Thanks for the picture show and travelog.
regards, as always, jefe
