So, we've been making good time and feeling okay. When people think of Colorado they usually think only of the Mountains...but there is plenty of grassland out here too, it's not much to look at, but when the wind isn't too bad it's easy to put miles behind you, and that's what we've been doing. And the thing about the Rocky Mountains is that the climb (although constant) is gradual...so it's not so bad (nothing like the Sierra Nevada's will be) and the beauty of mountains (unless you take the brake pad perspective) is the that once you climb, it's all downhill. We have realized though that "going west" (like young men ought) is a lot more difficult and has made for longer hours and harder days (sometimes from nearly sunup to sundown) than if we had been heading east...live and learn. We would like to thank:
The Cherry Family
and everyone thinking about us and praying for us
We could not have made it this far without all the help we've received and we are so very thankful!
