A couple weeks ago was Karl's birthday and to celebrate we all took a long weekend in Durango, Colorado.  The weather was iffy, but it all worked out in the end.  Little did I know it would be a bear-ful weekend. 

Of course, the first thing we did was check out the railroad station.  I got my picture taken on the wild horses sculpture out front.

A short while later we came across a hotel full of bears, the General Palmer Hotel. 

From there on, it was one bear-filled store after another. Stuarts had a friendly fellow.  We chatted while Caro bought a leather vest and Karl got a new hat. 

We came across this huge fellow just up the street.  He reminded me of the Kober's bear in Vienna.

And in an antique shop across the street, yet another interesting, if large, fellow.
