I’m not sure what the #1 challenge in a trip like this is. But I’m pretty sure that rating somewhere in the top 10 is the fact that when you are traveling for a solid month-you are constantly on the move. And that can be rather exhausting.
Every morning the same process occurs- jam all your clothes back into your unruly suitcase and watch the town disappear in the rear view.
This is also among the top 10 favorite things of a western excursion. The ground that you can cover is incredible-if you just keep moving!
We are so thankful for Deb’s Kennell connection 😉 Ervin, Rose and family showed us another very memorable time! We got in on a birthday party supper. *I love the various expressions on this pic
We organized Farren and just relaxed. And for some relaxing means drinking coffee on the couch 🙋🏻 but for others:
Heidi graciously provided supper for us, and we watched the evening sky in the Black Canyon. Such a beautiful evening!
Then, with the dawning of a new day, our itinerary demanded that we continue west. So we had a big day yesterday crossing both Bryce and Zion off the list.
There was a pretty major forest fire going on nearby, one of the roads was closed, the smoke turned the sun BRIGHT pink and everything looked yellow. We were glad to move on.
The girls have a little game going where they attempt to hold their breathe thru every tunnel. The tunnel that curves thru the inside of the rock mountain sure whipped them 🙂 of course 1.2 miles at 25 mph is a significant amount of time. ☺️
So we journey on, with hearts full of happiness and memories of delicious home-cooked food not as far in the distant past.
Bless you, dear people in the Western Rockies of beautiful Colorado for sharing with us!
See you down the trail,
