Colorado Byways

We have traveled to Utah in our annual migrations so many times and have failed to take advantage of such a beautiful place as Colorado just next door. Well this time we did (October 15th-22nd) and if you want a copy of the itinerary, just let me know. We went to so many interesting and spectacular places - world-class vistas. It was enhanced by the time of year and the changing leaves. Some of the highlights are pictured below: 2) visiting Lonetree, Wyoming and the ranch of my cousin Wade Stephens & his family - we had never passed through there before and it was well worth the visit, 3) Flaming Gorge, 4) Steamboat Springs - as good as Sun Valley, 5-7) Denver - we went to several museums, Coors Field, Mile High Stadium, toured the Hammond's Candy factory, went to the zoo, and had a nice visit with Jeff & Allison - lots of fun things to do and those are cute girls, 8-9) Colorado Springs - Air Force Academy and Garden of the Gods - what a beautiful location for a city and campus, 10-11) Pike's Peak - where else can you drive to the top of a 14,000+ peak, 12-13) Royal Gorge - scariest bridge in the world that you can cross in a car, 14) Great Sand Dunes National Park - in the middle of nowhere, but well worth a look, 15) super chicken and super chick, 16-17) Black Canyon of the Gunnison - another out-of-this-world hole in the ground, 18) Colorado National Monument - red rock and more red rock. We are planning another trip to hit the high places in the northern areas of Colorado that were closed already because of weather issues. Check it out!
