Friday 2/23/18 Cold Nasty Day
We had a long day, drove 500 miles. We started from the house at 8:30 am and stopped at 7:00 pm. We started out with rain and ended in sunshine at Amarillo, Texas. Most of the day it stayed around 38 degrees. When we stopped for lunch at a Subway in Cisco there was snow on the ground. What a surprise in Texas!!!

The drive was very nice. The only wildlife we saw were a few hawks and lots of dead skunks. Larry drove most of the day. I drove a couple of hours when Larry was tired. I did take a few naps during the drive. What a great day.
Saturday 2/24/18 Beautiful Day in Colorado
We finished driving to our destination. Where are we? We're in Salida, Colorado, where we'll stay for a few days.
We drove another 386 miles and were in Salida at noon. We started the day out with the temperature at 32 degrees, wind and thick fog and ended the day with the temperature at 28 degrees, wind and blue skies.
Larry drove for six hours and I napped most of the time. While driving through New Mexico we saw a few herds of Pronghorns and a couple of coyotes. The two coyotes were very healthy, they almost could pass as wolves. As we were driving in Colorado we saw snow along the highway and on the mountains, the closer we got to Salida the more snow we saw. We saw a couple herds of bison on private property. The owner had signs all over the place warning people not to approach the bison because they are dangerous. If Larry didn't wake me up I would have missed them. The drive was very relaxing.

About 40 miles from Salida we stopped at Subway for lunch. When we arrived at Salida we stopped at a snow ski shop and got our skies waxed. Whenever we go skiing before we hit the slopes we get our skies waxed that way they will glide better. We usually have to drop them off and come back the next morning but today the gentleman that took care of us waxed them while we waited. Great customer service. Now our skies are ready to hit the slopes.
We had a beautiful cold day.
