It was a long day today but we made it to within 400 miles of our final destination, Moab, Utah. We traveled through the rest of Indiana, Illinois, Missouri and Kansas and are now just into Colorado. All the way through, we saw wonderful sights. Some of which included the plains which were beautiful, the St. Louis Arch, crossing the Mississippi …
... checked into the Broadmoor. Our room was in the penthouse (5th floor) of Broadmoor West. It was the largest room we've had so far with a nice view of the lake that is central to the resort property.

Not going thru all the small towns was not nearly as tiring. In scenic Burlington (ha), we found the no-tel motel, Sloan's Motel. Was basic, but fine. Walked to Safeway for Lean Cuisines dinner in the micro! We are such high rollers! 105 there ...
