Being a compendium of thoughts as we drive and drive and....
Thru the mountains
The day started in Salida, Colorado, a delightful small town, with snow on the ground. It all melted pretty quickly with the strong sun, but it stayed cool through the morning. The town itself looks like it would be a good place to live – lots of recreational opportunities, art, music, restaurants, bakeries, shops, etc. Even its own public climbing wall and white water runs. And, we met lots of friendly dogs as we walked around the town. We got a sense of how our friend Darcie’s son runs a surf board business so far inland. White water surfing and stand up paddle boarding are new to us!
Drove through the beautiful Colorado mountains on steep winding roads via Breckenridge (where we had lunch), a ski town. We wondered if its Main St. retained original small scale buildings or is a faux small town. Lots of snow up here, the ski area still operating about half its terrain and lifts. Wonderful scenery.
Got to Boulder to find that Target did indeed have the long sleeved shirts Laura needed. Then visiting and dinner with Justine and Eric, who were kind enough to let us do our laundry.

There was an interesting article in the New Yorker last year about the book Cheap Land Colorado by Ted Conover.
