Today we drove through the plains of eastern Colorado to two more NPS sites. Many folks think of mountains when they think of Colorado, that's only about 2/3 correct; the eastern 1/3 of the state is just as boring and flat as Kansas & Nebraska. First, we visited Sand Creek Massacre NHS. It is the site where US troops massacred a bunch of friendly, peace-seeking Native Americans (mostly Arapahoe & Cheyenne) for no reason.

... very long day - 13 hours in the car and plenty of road without rest stops or gas stations. In fact one of the roads we took, Route 10 had a detour and it was totally desolate. The only living thing I saw for about 44 miles were horses and cows. Today the temperature reached 105 but believe it or not there was a cool wind so it did not feel it.
