We rented a car in GJ and drove another hour to Montrose, the home of J's dad, Jerry, and stepmom Wendy.
Their home is the neatest, most charming home in the neighborhood. It is definitely not your typical stucco Colorado home with rocks as a yardscape. Their home could be plucked right out of a Norman Rockwell painting, and it is so very neat, clean, and organized. Wendy loves to garden, and it shows. From her vegetables to wildflowers, she has a green thumb for sure. Check out these wildflowers which thrive in the Colorado summer. Not many neighbors have yards of grass, but they do. Jerry has a penchant for restoring cars, and his workshop garage is likely where you'll find him.
We dined at some local favorites while in Montrose. We enjoyed delicious Mexican at Fiesta Guadalajara. We also enjoyed our lunch at Remington's in the local The Bridges Golf Club. What a view! We also devoured our meal at Horsefly, a brewery in downtown Montrose.
We spent lots of down time enjoying the scenery in the backyard. The low humidity is just perfect. Here in NOLA, it is almost impossible to sit and enjoy the outdoors in July.
We also enjoyed our visit with some of the extended family who came over to Jerry and Wendy's for dinner.
On to Telluride and Vail....stay tuned!
