Oct 4- Leave for Denver

Once again on the road.


We’ve hit the thousand mile mark.

Weather is getting colder and a storm warning is still in effect.  Linda and Ken tried to convince me to wait out another day, but I was antsy to get started toward Denver.  IMG_1171

As we traveled south it was hard to believe the weather was going to change


until……  slowly the clouds were rolling in.

I was very excited to stop and see where Custer fell……

Oh well.

The dogs enjoyed the break, outside the Monument gates.  They weren’t allowed in anyway.



I met a very nice Chinese couple who were planning to travel highway 14 into South Dakota.  I think about them now as I know now that the road is closed.   Little did I know what surprise was waiting me further south.  I was extremely excited to see all the snow and couldn’t stop taking pictures…

A little foreshadowing?

    I think that Chinese couple got quite a surprise if they made it to South Dakota! My parents live in Spearfish and they just got their power back today after the snowstorm of 3 feet! So much damage done there from it. Yeash! Love the pictures!
