A small town between Durango & Mesa Verde in south western Colorado. The Hotel here, the shadow of which you can see in the fg, had great home-made pizza & microbrews.

The Town of Dolores is a Statutory Town in Montezuma County, Colorado, United States. The population was 857 at the 2000 census. It is one of three incorporated municipalities in the county.

"Dolores (Spanish for "sorrow" and named for the river on which it is located) is located at the mouth of the Dolores Valley and the upper reaches of McPhee Reservoir, approximately 40 miles from the Four Corners Monument. Established as a station on the Rio Grande Southern Railway, it replaced the earlier town, Big Bend, now covered by McPhee Reservoir. McPhee Reservoir is named for a company town founded by New Mexico Lumber Company, that is now covered by the reservoir. Five minutes from McPhee is Moser Farms located at Hilltop Ranch."
