I wrote the above paragraph about five hours ago and still we continued along the river for a total of about seven hours, climbing the whole time through gorges and plateaus. I spotted four bald eagles along the way. That was very cool. I am a big fan of bald eagles. The first book I fell in love with as a child was called Vulcan, a story about a bald eagle. One of the ones I saw today was not fully mature and had a black head, but was definitely a bald eagle.
We are now descending into the Denver area. This also reminds me of driving into Guatemala City. We emerged from a tunnel and suddenly saw the sea of lights below, the plateau that is Denver, another mile high city.
