Default Southwest Colorado trip

My better half and I took a week the beginning of August and Jeeped the southwest area of Colorado with friends. The scenery was incredible and as always in Colorado, breathtakingly beautiful. We had great weather except rain for the last two days. We encountered some good down pours while climbing Imogene Pass and watched a lot of stock rental Jeeps struggle or have to turn around. The rain helped keep traffic down, which was nice. We were able to locate remote campsites most of the nights and had no other company and incredible views. Brewery stops were mandatory in Ouray and Telluride and thanks to the large Yeti, there was plenty of room for trail growlers. The AEV gear performed great as always, with only a small bit of under bumper rash thanks to wet rock and a poor line. The trails were great for a first timer like my wife, however, they left me wanting for more technical driving. If you're a flat lander, I suggest not taking long hikes, especially over 12,000 ft elevation!
