Mid-west to North-west

28 Sep 2011

Just before we left Salt Lake City, we heard the great news of the safe arrival of Millie Jacquiline, born to Kim and Simon on 26 September – a baby sister for Charlie & Harrison and a grand-daughter for Glenda. We are happy & relieved that she has arrived safely and all is well. We are looking forward to meeting her when we return to the land of Oz!
On our way, we passed through spectacular scenery: driving through mountains with brilliant colours of autumn against the back-drop of green; sparkling streams, eagles riding thermals; and incredible rock formations – all on great roads.
We entered Colorado via the Brontasauris Fwy, continuing on the Stegasauris Fwy (near Dinosaur National Monument and a town called ‘Dinosaur’) following rivers and passing lakes – perfect areas for camping, hiking & fishing. We saw old-style yellow school buses along the way – it’s amazing that people live in these remote areas. Colours of buildings are reds & browns – blending into the natural landscape.
We arrived at our destination: Glenwood Springs – the Spa of the Rockies where we stayed (thanks to Rebecca’s recommendation) to soak up therapeutic minerals from the natural spring pool (total length of therapy plus main pool -170 m long plus children’s pool), established in 1888 set in the rocky mountains. Tomorrow we leave for Durango & Mesa Verde National Park, on our way to Arizona.
