artful tour of the southwest '10

I feel like I'm hardly ever home lately - we've just been on a 9-day trip to visit relatives in Colorado Springs. Most of the time was spent driving from here to there. Here are a few photos, chosen with an artful point of view.

This is a view of Santa Fe from our hotel room.

We love Durango and always stay at the funky Hotel Rochester B&B downtown.
These are the Helen Hunt Falls in Colorado Springs. Betcha didn't know Helen Hunt had her own waterfall!

An architectural detail seen at the historic Broadmoor hotel in Colorado Springs.

Downtown Telluride has lots of quaint shops and restaurants.. You can see Bridal Veil Falls in the background.

Although it was hot, we also spent some time on the creek trail close to downtown.

There were lots of photo opportunities in Moab, Utah. We drove through Arches National Park where we saw this balanced rock.

We saw several arches. Since it was 113 that day, we missed the arches that required major hiking.

This is called the Three Gossips. Look like anybody you know?
