After we returned home we played a few games of UNO. My niece Emma is and pro and showed m how Colorado girls hustle at cards. Later I met Betsy's brother Ben for a beer at a nearby bar and caught up which was great before I headed to bed. 10PM mountain time still feels like midnight my time.
TODAY I'm about to leave Denver to drive across the largest Mountain range in the country. The highlight will defiantly be driving over the continental divide. There are two routes possible routes. The first is through the Eisenhower Tunnel under the mountains
Tonight I'll stay at a hotel in Grand Junction, enjoy some natural hot springs and turn in early tonight and get a nice long rest before the next 1000 miles to the coast.
Since it's a shorter drive to Grand Junction--just over 4 hours--I'll have time for plenty of stops for pictures.
