|We left Glenwood Springs on Saturday morning about 9:30AM. I-70 East bound from GWS takes you through the beautiful Glenwood Canyon, where the freeway is in an over and under configuration as if follows the Colorado River. It also takes you over two very steep passes--Vail Pass at 10,662 feet and the Eisenhower Tunnel at 11,158 feet. The tunnel is the longest mountain tunnel and the highest point on the Interstate Highway System. The Aire averaged 5.3 MPG from GWS to the tunnel--pretty good I think!!
We arrived in the Denver area and parked and plugged in at our friends', Jim and Chris, place. 50 AMP. After getting settled we took Marlin and Aurora to the Denver Aquarium. After touring through the aquarium we ate dinner in while looking through the glass of a massive tank full of sea life. It was very cool and the kids loved it. They even named some of the fish that continued to swim by.
Sunday morning we left for Denver International Airport. Once parked and in the terminal, it was rush, rush, rush. By the time we reached the gate, most of the passengers were already aboard. An attendant came out and escorted Marlin and Aurora to their seats. A couple of hours later they landed in Reno, where Michele was waiting for them. All good.
The afternoon was spent with Jim and Chris, talking and catching up. We went out to dinner together and called it a night around 8PM.
Tomorrow we pick up our oldest grandchild (grandadult actually) Jordan to spend a week with us as we travel East.
Next stop Salina, Kansas. See you there.
And the adventure continues,
