Sep 19, 2014 - Denver

September 19, 2014 Beautiful morning so we took a walk on the Cherry Hill bike/walking path. It’s 6 miles to downtown on the path. (Josh bikes this path to work each day. Has a neat saddlebag where he can role up his pants/shirt/tie). Walked to Whole Foods for breakfast and then home Bob washed the rig and I made cucumber soup for Sunday dinner. Lazy day. Sat by the pool and read for most of the afternoon. Tonight we went to Table 6 for dinner. Very eclectic menu and wine list. Josh had Cheesesteak Tator Tots, Griddled Onions, Green...

Sep 18, 2014 - Estes Park to Denver, CO

September 18, 2014 Was REALLY dark last night with wonderful stars. Oh, and Bob is ahead in the cribbage tournament by one game. I no longer am going to give him the points he misses! Left camp about 8:00 without breakfast in order to get a parking spot for hiking to Cub Lake. Another gorgeous fall day. Just as we started on the trail a big bugling bull elk walked in front of us. Did not see any ladies around so not his lucky day! The whole time we were hiking we could hear the bulls bugling. Fun! We saw a few bulls across the meadow just...

Aug 30, 2014 - Denver CO

After settling in at Cherry Creek State Park and doing some much needed chores around the RV we made our way to Mac and Ginny McCaffrey's house for an outstanding dinner. Ginny loves to make lamb chops for Richard. Does she feel that I deprive him of his favorite lamb? ( really don't. But she was very gracious and made a steak for me. All in all a great meal! The next day was dinner at Benny's Restaurant and Tequila Bar, 301 E. 7th Ave., our favorite in Denver, for another incredible dinner. Mac always takes us on a tour around Denver...

Aug 4, 2014 - Day 4 Fruita Co. to Denver Co.

Day 4 August 4, 2014 The journey home August 4th 2014. After getting a good night's sleep we were ready for our 4 hour 254 mile journery home. There's really not a whole lot to say about this day, as all we did was drive home. We got started as late as possible it was around noon before we got on the road. It was kind of a dreary, overcast, rainy day. We drove straight home only stopping so the kids could stretch, and use the restroom. It was a good drive. Luckly we stayed pretty much in front of the storm the whole way. We...

Aug 1, 2014 - Day 1 Denver Co. to Vernal Ut.

Day 1 August 1 2014 We set out on our 320 mile drive at 8:30 am, in search of dinosaurs. At about 2:30pm we had made it to Dinosaur National Monument. We should have stopped at the visitors center, but we didn't. We continued on our drive up the main road into the park. Harpers corner rd. is a 22 mile (one way, 44 total) loop that takes you north into the center of the park and back again. The first overlook was very beautiful. The rest of the scenery I would rate as just average it was pretty, just not breathtaking like the...

Jul 4, 2014 - Colorado, Denver Stop

I spent a week in Gering/Scottsbluff, Nebraska recovering from the trip up into the Big Horns. Hummm, maybe I forgot to include that portion of the trip in the journal. Oh well, Nebraska is pretty forgettable anyway. I then headed toward Colorado. Along the way I happened upon Cabela's world head quarters and made my first visit to a Cabela's store. That's no big deal either. I stayed at North Sterling State Park in Colorado for two reasons: 1)I get into Colorado State Parks for free and 2) because there's nowhere else to stay in that...

Jun 28, 2014 - Red Rocks Amphitheatre

We have always wanted to visit the Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Denver, we finally made it there today. We were both surprised to see it is actually located in Morrison, Colorado, a few miles away from Denver. It did have awesome views of the city of Denver though. Red Rocks Amphitheatre is a geological phenomenon – the only naturally-occurring, acoustically perfect Amphitheatre in the world. From Sting and The Beatles, to opera stars and U2, every artist aspires to play on this magical, spiritual and emotional stage. It was quite impressive...

Jun 26, 2014 - Denver Airport

We were all up early this morning, Vickie and Sam had to be at the airport in Denver for an early flight. We thought we only had to drive about 35 miles, we were all surprised to find out the drive was actually about 65 miles. We made it in time for them to catch the flight home. As I write this catch up journal they are already back home in Kentucky. We all had a wonderful time together and can’t wait until the next visit. Jerry and I dropped them off and headed to Evergreen, Colorado to drop off his computer. He is having a lot of...

Jun 25, 2014 - Giant Sandbox & a Home Run

Denver, CO Today was our day to explore the Great Sand Dunes National Park. The park contains the tallest sand dunes in North America, rising about 750 feet from the floor of the San Luis Valley at the base of the Sangre de Cristo Range. Remarkably these are living dunes but they are not moving. There are several streams flowing on the perimeter of the dunes. The streams erode the edge of the dune field, and sand is carried downstream. The water disappears into the ground, depositing sand on the surface. Winds pick up the deposits of sand,...
