We are just below Denver tonight.
We left the hotel in Raton, New Mexico this morning and headed north on I-25. My friend, Melanie, was not expecting us until late this afternoon, so we killed some time touring Fort Carson, Colorado and the Garden of the Gods in Colorado Springs.
Wow! What a day! Gabe barely played with his Ipod Touch or watched the DVD player...he was loving the sights outside.
As for our visit, with Melanie and her family, it was so good to see all of them. We spent the afternoon at her house, drank some Shiraz, and had dinner at a nearby restaurant...I really do miss seeing her on a regular basis.
Tomorrow, we drive on toward Yellowstone National Park, about 550 miles from where we are now.
Here's some pics from the trip so far:
