Sep 16, 2008 - Kansas to Denver in a Day

When I looked at the Road Atlas yesterday, I told Jim we better stock up on supplies 'cause we'd be crossing miles and miles of barren country today! Well, I was partially right. The stretch of highway between Salina, Kansas and Colorado (all the way to Denver, really) is like a flat-line EKG: flat and straight. Fortuntately, in today's world of gas stations and convenience stores, life does exist at exits (even if the rest of the state is barren). So in Colby, KS we found a super-store and bought enough food for the next couple of days....

Sep 10, 2008 - Colorado Is Beautiful - Even In A Thunderstorm

We've arrived in the suburbs of Denver after driving through Colorado mostly in rainstorms. I'm attaching some pictures taken through the windshield in-between thunderstorms. Don P.S. It rained during the best part of the drive. It's a 13 mile section in Garfield County that has been featured on the history channel and is considered one of the most scenic drives in the U.S. Go to the following website to see the pictures.

Sep 3, 2008 - Last game of the year.

It is hard to believe that our Major League Baseball season has come to an end. Yep, today we attended our last game. The Giants were in town to take on the Colorado Rockies so we headed to Coors Field. This is yet another in a series of 'newer' stadiums. It holds over 50,000 folks and is very comfortable and easy to get around in. Of course todays day game saw only about 23,000 people in attendance to watch the Giants defeat the Rockies by a score of 9-2!! So, here's our stats for the season. We watched the Giants defeat the Cubs &...

Aug 27, 2008 - Drive to NM was different for a change!

Making an entry just to get Denver on the map. Too tired to write much but I am in New Mexico after going over at 7,834 foot high “pass” through the mountains. Weather continues to be great. It’s warm but no rain to speak. I don’t really feel the difference in the heat..seems humid to me! And although some folks say they can feel the difference in the air at these altitudes, I have only found I am thirstier. That may be because of the “dry heat” (that seems humid to me!) So long for now, will add some pics next time, Carol

Aug 14, 2008 - Yellowstone Trip #3

Hi All, We are now at our dear friends Janet & Lloyd Maple's place in Denver. Parked in the driveway for a couple of days. Lloyd and I played some golf yesterday at a nice course in the mountains behind Denver called Evergreen Golf Course, had a great time! Betty and Janet went up to Blackhawk to do some evil gambling...... I've also attached a picture of the house in Canon City that we think would be a good retirement home. What do you think? Our next stop will be back at our daughter Dena's for one last visit before heading North to...

Aug 12, 2008 - Travels with Glenda 4-5

Travels with Glenda 4-5 Golden, CO, home of the Coors Brewing Co. How can we pass up the opportunity to tour the facility? We don’t. The brewery is several blocks long and if the breeze is right it smells wonderful. Inside we pass by the tanks used to create the various brews produced here. All is shiny and clean. The bottling and packing lines move at an almost blinding speed. At the end of the tour was the free tasting room. Each adult is allowed 3 samples. We figured they would be 2 or 3 ounces each. Instead they were in 10 ounce glasses...

Aug 12, 2008 - Denver

Hi everyone, Well we been in Denver the last couple of days seeing lots of neat sites. The capital building was very interesting, we got to go all the way up in the dome. Saw the Colorado History Museum and the Art Museum. Both very fun. My favorite was the US Mint,you could not take a camara or phone in, you could only have a wallet nothing else. There metal detects could even pickup a gum rapper. So security was very tight. They make all the coins here in Denver, a very interesting process. It make you want to collect coins. They produce...

Aug 2, 2008 - Denver, CO

HI Everyone, Just thought we would let you know we are in Denver and leaving the motorhome in the State Park on a Lake. We are heading for Lost Valley Ranch tomorrow. So excited to see Tammie tomorrow. We wish Christie was with us, it will be different without her. Will hopefully be able to post pictures from the ranch but I'm not sure how strong the internet will be. So we will be horseback riding and doing all the activity the ranch has to offer. It will be nice to be out of the motorhome for a week, but we feel like its home this...

Jul 26, 2008 - Denver, Colorado Day 2

Today was awesome! We ventured into dowtown Denver. It wasn't really what we expected and had some pretty rough parts, but they are trying to clean it up. We found a nice mall and shoping area and just spent most of the day there. We ate at Paramount Cafe which used to be an old movie theater and it was very good. Then we went bowling at Lucky Strike Bowling. If you have already checked out the pictures, yes Chloe did actually win, you and yes I did come in dead last. I am not going to make up some sad excuse as to why I didn't win, but I...

Jul 26, 2008 - Colorado

As usual, we failed to get out early as we had planned (although we did break down the tent in record time today). Once we finally got moving from our campsite in Vernal, we went to Dinosaur National Monument Park, the area in which many fossils and dinosaurs, such as diplodocus and allosaurus, were found. We were planning on going for a hike, but when we got there there was a Ranger tour of the park. Since it was already really hot at 10:30 am (and we didn't have a great breakfast) we opted for the tour, which ironically, did not include...
