Oct 13, 2004 - JFK to Denver, Colorado

DAY 8 (Wed 13th Oct) Up at 4 am to catch the 7am flight to Denver. I used to be good at early mornings, but not so much now. En route, I looked back at my time in New York. It's a fascinating place, with a tremendously vital pulse, but as with most cities, the inhabitants are focussed on their own lives, and don't have so much time for visitors. I was fascinated by the place, but my heart lies in open spaces and a slower pace of life. Getting out of the airport at Denver I certainly got my open spaces. We were to the east of the city, which...

Sep 11, 2004 - Driving to Colorado

Today we set our navigation system for Golden, Colorado (11 miles from Denver). The trip was about 250 miles - 5.5 hours to drive. The temp. this a.m. was low 70's. As we drove, the Colorado River crisscrossed our path and we saw river rafters and kayaks floating down stream. There was a beautiful bike path that ran alongside the river. What a beautiful sunny day(it reached the mid 80's) to enjoy all those outdoor activities. The mountains were breathtaking and every now and then we drove into a tunnel that traveled through the...

Aug 7, 2004 - Denver, Colorado

We arrived in Denver after two days of driving through California, Utah, and Colorado. Our first stop was Vegas which seemed to be just around the corner compared to how far we still have to go. Utah is a gorgeous state and the desert and canyons are beautiful. It was nice to finally get to Denver so we could get out of the car for a while. We stayed at Ben's sister's house and spent some time hanging out with her and her family. Next stop Virginia!

Jul 15, 2004 - Colorado - State # 9 - Fort Collins KOA, Aurora, Colorado City KOA

Colorado was the stormy state for us!! Except for our 2 hour picnic with Aunt Sally! It was sunny and warm.....she even had water balloons and guns ready for the kids to play with! But, on the road, we had evil looking storms out ahead. The weather was very unstable....hail and thunderstorms....something we're definitely not used to in So Cal. We're going to be in for more weather in the south next year, on our summer L.A. to Orlando trip in 2010!

Jun 30, 2004 - Celestial Seasoning

Day 20 -- Wednesday, June 30 Golden, CO (Chief Hosa Campground) Miles driven: 94 Elevation: 7665 Today was a lazy day, getting ready to leave civilization. Tomorrow, we'll be going over the continental divide. There won't be another large city until Salt Lake City, a week from now. So, we went grocery shopping and stocked up on items that we need. We did make one tourist stop, at the Celestial Seasoning's corporate headquarters. We took their guided factory tour and saw how the tea is processed and packaged. We also sampled some of their...

2004 USA Road Trip

Jun 27, 2004 - Boulder, Colorado

Day 17 -- Sunday, June 27 Boulder, Colorado (Walter's driveway) Miles driven: 240 Today, we bid farewell to Kansas. We soon came to Denver and Boulder and discovered that, yes; there is life after Kansas. For lunch, we stopped at a "Sonic". For those that haven't seen one, it's a drive-in restaurant similar to what was common in the 50's. You order through the window and the waitresses come out to your car. (No roller skates.) Since our van is tall, Richard had to get out to check our roof clearance as we drove in. When we stopped for gas,...

2004 USA Road Trip

Jul 12, 2003 - Denver

After a silly argument about Amber Airplane being late for the taxi (partly my fault -- I should know by now she's always late), we took the first flight to Denver. We then hopped a regional jet to Sioux Falls, SD, in the eastern half of the state (Map courtesy of MyTripJournal.com. Travel websites from $19. Free demo.). The flight was only an hour, but Amber Airplane passed out. I have never seen her sleep like this, so I had to shake her to make sure she was still breathing.

May 9, 2003 - Denver, Boulder & Rocky Mountain NP

Today we are off for Denver to see a few sights there, as Phil has never been there. I've been there so many times I could throw up! But first, we head to the US Air Force Academy for a tour there as we leave beautiful Colorado Springs. This is quite a campus, but young by Academy standards, only started in the 1950's. This was finals week, so not many cadets around, and they canceled their daily parade because of it. Their chapel is world renowned, and it is breathtaking. A design like any you've ever seen. Once in Denver, we did see some...

Jan 9, 2003 - Part 2: Kansas to Colorado

January 9, 2003 We drove through the rest of the state of Kansas and were happy to get that monotonous drive behind us. This time we headed into Colorado and started seeing the land get a little hilly, then gradually very hilly. We started noticing something in Colorado we had never seen before but would soon become accustomed to. Snow fences. They are usually alongside a highway to keep the heavy snow from drifting and clogging up the roadways. Dan's sister lives in Denver, so we happily and stupidly drove right into rush hour traffic....

Jun 26, 2001 - Tue - Denver, CO

(Leaving: Moab, UT - Destination: Denver, CO - 350 miles) 07:02 AM We are showered, packed and check out. We stop at the "Jailhouse Cafe" down the street for some breakfast. We have a great meal! 07:37 AM After a quick breakfast we hit the road. We decide to alter our itinerary at this point and bypass The Royal Gorge and Pike's Peak. Instead, we head north to get on I-70 and drive that beautiful interstate route through The Rockies to Denver. There are very dark clouds around and it looks like rain. This is the worst looking day,...
