Colorado Field Ornithologist Convention Day 1

The Colorado Field Ornithologist (CFO) hold a convention inside of Colorado every year. Last year they went to Trinnidad, but this year we went to Cortez! We woke up at 6:30 am on Thursday morning and managed to be out of the house by 7:15. What was supposed to be a 7 hour drive turned into a 12 hour drive with various stops, lost keys, and scary mountain passes. We filled up at a really interesting old style gas station. We were going to stop for some birding toward Durango but by the time we arrived in Durango
--after 4 mountain passes-- we weren't really feeling like birding. When we arrived in Cortez we checked into our hotel and met up with some other birders who checked in for us.
