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,...

Jun 12, 2014 - Denver Airport

We were so excited today, the day to pick Sammy and Vickie up at the airport has finally arrived. :-) We drove about 125 miles to the airport in Denver. The drive to the airport took us over a couple of high passes, it was a beautiful drive with snow-capped mountains and lots of waterfalls. We also enjoyed driving through all the tiny towns we have not visited before. We arrived at the perfect time, Vickie and Sammy were on their way to pick up their bags, we only had to wait a few minutes before they met us at the Delta Terminal. On the...

Jun 1, 2014 - Denver

June 1, 2014 We went downtown to Larimer Street that had been closed off for chalk artists. Lots of food vendors and of course the artists were working. Rain was threatening but it didn’t seem to impact the artists. Not sure what their contingency plans were! Bistro Vendome ( on Larimer Street) was fully booked and the truly had the ambiance of a French bistro. All of us had steak frites except Bob who had a lamb dish. I of course shared my frites with Bob! We didn’t finish until nearly 10:30. Full and tired we went home without it raining...
