We stayed in Eagle, CO last night in a Holiday Inn Express. They have internet access so I uploaded a bunch of pictures from the trip. Right now we are about 950 miles into our 2100 mile journey.
We are at 6600 ft right now and we have to go up to around 11,000 to get back down to Denver (mile high). We’ll be going slow until we get through the mountains…wish us luck.
We were going to try and push on last night, but the roads here are definitely for day driving (unless you know what your doing). There was a rock slide yesterday right were we are going to be. Luckily they got it cleared so we can get through.
Ben and I talked to a couple of guys at the bowling alley bar last night. They said it’s smooth sailing after Denver.
Thanks for all the great pictures. The landscape … rock formations and outcroppings … is actually quire different than the drive from AZ to IL. I was quite surprised! Keep on truckin’!
Love, Aunt Debbie
You are having quite the adventure!! Awesome photos! Be safe and I’ll see you soon!
I am so glad that you missed that rock slide and you made it there safely.
