Oh for heavens sake...
this just has to stop.
3 day trips and a 2-day road trip in the past week...
This is my haul, just from the road trip!
I must say, road trippin' is fun and a great way to see the state.
I'm one who goes else where for vacation, so I tend to forget
whats in my own back yard.
I've lived here over 50 years and never gone over Red Mountain Pass
And lots of mining history
All from days gone by.
We went thru Canon City, Salida, Alamosa, Monte Vista, Durango,
Montrose, Delta, Grand Junction, and Glenwood Springs, just for rows!
It was an added bonus to get to have lunch with some of our favorite Alaska munchkins, in Montrose!
They are a mighty long way from home!
We hit the peak of peach season,
so we took a little diversion to Palisade!
Oh my gosh, they are delicious.
Nothing beats a road trip like breaking down just feet from the summit of Wolf Creek Pass. Add in two people that know nothing about cars!
Yikes. Thank goodness we had a lot of bottled water.
Seems like the radiator ran dry.
Have no idea how, but once it cooled off, we were able to fill it
and get into the next town for antifreeze/coolant.
We were very fortunate to find a wonderful honest Firestone repair
shop in Durango, that did a pressure test on the cooling system and gave us the OK to drive back to Denver.
We had no further problems and they didn't try to sell us anything.
Best less than $28 we ever spent!
Thanks Firestone, you brought our stress
level down to nothing!
Take a look at this row from Salida.
Is that gorgeous?
I can hardly wait to get started on it.
Yep, a good time was had by all!
Now back to work
