Now back to how the last few days have unfolded.
Day 29: This turned out to be our last day camping. Although I actually have enjoyed the tent part. Which amazed me! The bathrooms not so much…so happy to have checked this off my list:)
Still no reception but we needed to book a room for tonight.
I have been trying different ways to book and using different timing. I have found 2-3 days in advance work well or day of but not the day before. I booked a hotel room on hotels.com again while sitting in a spot in the Grand Canyon were we could get service.
Now for a hike! Wow!!! Views is an understatement !!!
I am thinking I would like to hike to the Colorado river and raft down the river. Starting a new bucket list!
Arches National Park was an impressive natural phenomenon...
I was a mile from the park exit and pulled over and received a $130.00 speeding ticket, with a $30.00 processing fee, what is this???? NO FUN!! :(
I really hope the $$ goes to the National Parks.
Last National Park on the trip.
On our way again and heading to Denver Colorado. We were supposed to camp tonight in the Rockies but our friends beautiful home and amazing hospitality was VERY enticing! We arrived late for dinner…but they were so kind they waited! Feeling blessed!!! The wine in my hand just after walking through the door was perfect! It was a wonderful summer Rose’. Let me just mention Mic and Bobby took us in while in St. Louis too. Not sure Victoria and I would still be traveling without these rest stops along the way with friends to help rejuvenate us!
She was even willing to accept lodging from a St. Louis Blues fan!
Tour guides for the second time on this trip Mic and Bobby arranged for a PERFECT day exploring the mountains near Denver and the city. We started with a winery, finally…Victoria let me stop and enjoy wine at lunch:) We sat above the river and enjoyed a flight and delicious lunch.
Just about any musician you can think of has performed here.
The altitude can effect you but we saw people training using the seating. If you LOOK closely you can see 3 men in the center doing sit ups. Impressive!!
