My World and Welcome to It!

These are my thoughts and opinions about life in general. I also get daily prompts from DSP which inspire me to write. If I throw in some scrapbook pages I've done, photos I've taken, and stories about me, you will have an idea about my loony life!

Friendships and Adventure Day 9 (Colorado, Wyoming)

Blog prompt: Friendships. How close are you and how much fun do you have?

My husband is my best friend and we have an amazing wonderful time whenever we are together, no matter where we are. He doesn’t mind exploring and trying new adventures. Sometimes I want to see something that I had read about and it may be a good thing or a dud but he doesn’t care (and doesn’t give me a hard time if it is a dud). I have a couple of friends that I try to stay in contact with but because we travel so much, I only see my other friends about twice a year, but I do email them a lot so that helps.

Travel Notes:

We got up early this morning and saw that the wind was still blowing snow around and we couldn’t tell if it was still snowing or not. It was really dark, gloomy, and cold which meant staying in the hotel room and watching old movies after breakfast. Finally around 11:30 we noticed the sun had come out and decided to knock the snow off the car. When we noticed that the snow looked melted in the parking lot and that there were lots of vehicles on the interstate, we packed our stuff up and checked out of the hotel. We figured since bad weather was heading this way again in a couple of days we needed to get further up the road. Driving through Denver though was a nightmare due to the many accidents causing us to be in bumper to bumper traffic. Obviously people were driving too fast and then hit the ice that was still on the road under the bridges causing them to spin out and hit other cars. Once we got out of Denver, it was clear sailing up to Cheyenne, Wyoming.

Then we headed west along I-80 and the scenery was awesome. I loved seeing the snow covered mountains and the windmills along the way. Then we came to Rawlins, Wyoming and decided to spend the night. We are staying at an Oak Tree Inn which looks like it caters to railroad workers. We had dinner at Penny’s Diner right next door and the food was really great. Breakfast comes free with the room and I think it will be a good breakfast. We are checking out the weather for further up the road and I just hope we don’t hit any bad snow but it looks like we can’t avoid it. I am keeping my fingers crossed that we can make it to Seattle by Tuesday.

What trip you're having! I loved Wyoming when we drove through it a couple of years ago. So very beautiful.

Am I remembering right that you're planning on coming down to Oregon after your conference in Seattle? Or will you be driving through on your way north? I still want to see you, so keep in touch!
