The Long Drive

On Saturday Reid and I set out about one in the afternoon to drive west and then north, to prove to ourselves that there is indeed something west of Alamosa. And there is!! They're called mountains. We visited several little towns (Monte Vista, South Fork, Creede and Lake City). We were in Lake City for dinner. It's about halfway around the loop we were trying to drive. We chose to keep driving even though it meant driving through more mountains at night... but hey, you're only young once, right? :) We got home about eleven and slept in late the next day.

On a completely unrelated note... the only bad thing we've found so far with our apartment is that one of the smoke detectors is right outside the bathroom door and if you open the door right after taking a shower, it goes off (which terrifies Tater). There is a little window in the shower, which if you open it helps some... and that's fine right now while it's in the fifties in the mornings. But I think we're going to have to find some other way when it is negative twenty outside...

And did you plan ahead and have blankets and water and such in the car???

Cars do break down sometimes you know. And I bet there wasn't a WHOLE lot of traffic on those roads either :-)

That is such a dad comment!! Jenna, I just got all caugt up on your blog. I haven't read it in a while and you actually use yours, so I didn't realize how behind I'd be. But the pictures of the flowers were gorgeous! I'm glad the move went well, and tell Reid I said hi!
