Best Western Torchlite Motor Inn

We had to get up at a ridiculously early hour (5:30 a.m.) to pack up and leave to get to the Denver U.S. Mint in time for our 8 a.m. tour. You need to be there 30 mins. before the tour begins and parking is interesting in that area. All are pay lots. I found a $5 all day lot two blocks straight down from the Mint. Part of the fun of finding the …
... and there was only one other camper there. We unpacked, relaxed a bit, checked out email and facebook and had a salad with chicken evening meal. Sprinkles set in so we went to bed early - even before it got dark. Because we got to bed early, we were both up early at about 5:30 am - and on the road before 6:30 am. Its a good thing too, as about 5 people who work for the town started showing up at their shop which was next to our campsite.
Our first stop, a ...
I left Fort Collins around 9 am this morning. It is important I get home early today before the snows flies! The sun was shining this morning, clear skies and we were ready to go.
Last night I felt compelled to name my bike. I tried to come up with something uber masculine as it is a big, black BMW. I settled on Bertha. A bike is like a ship so I thought a female name was better. And, for those of you that know my musical tastes, there is ...
... Rocky Mountains and Este Park.
The views were stunning and although the day was overcast, it made a very pleasant change after the desert ride.

We had a couple of fuel up's as we wove our way through ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsBest Western Torchlite Motor Inn Wheatland
This is one night we did not have reservations, so as nightfall was approaching we stopped at the motor inn. It has been years since I have stayed at a Best Western due to the poor quality I had found. This one was a very pleasant surprise. The room was clean, the beds comfortable, the owner very helpful and informative of the area, the breakfast offered both hot and cold entrees, and coffee is always available. Although close to Hwy 25, the room was quiet. Not much to do here but it was a pleasant one night stay.
