... turns out a cyclist had gone off the road and hurt himself pretty badly. When we arrived the MedFlight helicopter was just taking off. The pass was interesting because most of the drive was on dirt. The RAM did very well - that what it is made for. We also traveled along Taylor Reservoir - one of many huge lakes in Colorado.
We look forward to visiting Randy and Dori again in the future. They live in a beautiful area.

... Pass as we headed to Buena Vista. We plan to meet Randy Peters and his wife Dori. Randy is a friend of mine who I worked with for many years at John Deere. Randy retired in 2009 and moved to his dream house in the mountains in Buena Vista. It should be a good visit. While traveling through the pass, Sheila and I stopped to have a bit of a snowball fight.

... arms and invited us for dinner at a reserve table and the large TV tuned to ESPN and the game at 6:00 pm....We had a wonderful dinner that included steak for the girls and I had the house special of Wild Game Meatloaf that consisted of buffalo, elk, and moose meat..Very tasty! Finished dinner and stayed at the bar watching the baseball game..Andy, the bartender was very pleasant and a huge Detroit baseball fan so we hit it off great...Disappointing ...
