Well, its officially summertime. Time to play in the mountains, drink refreshing beverages and savor that flavor, because from here on out, the days are only getting shorter. And who knows how to enjoy a hard-earned summer better than us Durangoans? With the aftermath of the solstice still lingering, heres a few shots of life in Durango during the longest day of the year.
