We slept in a little this morning and then went down to the restaurant to enjoy our free breakfast. It's good to be Diamond members at the Hilton. They always take good care of us. After breakfast we got out our maps and wine book and planned our day. We are headed to Palisade to do some wine, beer and liquor tasting.
We also decided that this needs to be scouting trip for bringing Lesley and Ray here in September when they are visiting us ...
This morning we got up really early which was not easy. During the night the wood burner stove in our cabin ran out of wood so it was chilly outside of our giant pile of blankets. We really wanted to make it to the hot springs to watch the sunrise. We made coffee and warmed up the car to drive the 300 feet down the driveway to the pool area. I know this sounds wimpy but it was only 16 degrees out and we did not want to walk back all wet. We sat in the 105 ...
We had a pretty big ride on our hands today, but first we wanted to check out the Royal Gorge Bridge, which was on the way to our next destination.

One more note, to Melissa - thanks so much for the phone conversation last night. It was awesome to hear from you and I had a lot of fun.
Also, it appears I am now a great aunt. My nephew and his girlfriend had a baby named Eamon last week. Congratulations you two - there is so much to learn ahead of you. I have great hope that you will do your very best to quickly become adults and the best parents possible. You are in my prayers.
Love to you all!
