We’re officially 8 hours from Denver.

I remember this part of the ride from our Family Reunion trip in 1990.  Kids everywhere, sleeping on the floor… It was crazy.

How different this trip is…  where the last trip was non-stop hectic and noise, this is quiet and serene.  I’m glad I have the other memory to judge this trip against.

The scenery continues to be stunning.  We travel along side the Colorado River for 238 or so miles.  It’s a pretty spectacular site to behold.

We just left Grand Junction where the Gunnison and Colorado Rivers meet.  I don’t think I’d want to live here, but it does have some great scenery.

Lunch is coming up in about an hour.  I think another salad may be in order…..
