This is another December 2007 photo. It was taken in the opposite directions of last week’s photo.

It seems I do not have much to say about this other than I think it is a beautiful mountain, but the name “Spud” does not quite convey its majesty, in my opinion.  To go through the mountain pass in this area is something I have done once and never intend to do again.  If I need to get to the other side of the mountain, I will choose an alternate route!

This is taken from Purgatory Ski Resort near Durango, Colorado. Apparently it is really called “Durango Mountain Resort,” but no one calls it that since it was “Purgatory” for years before they changed the name.

Note about name of mountain: I can already see this is going to be a question. SOOO, first I’m not 100% sure that’s the mountain’s name. But it IS the name of one of the mountains that could be seen from where I am standing, and the expert I asked said she THOUGHT it was that one. It supposedly looks like a potato???  (WHATEVER!) I did not name it!
