A Quick Trip to Colorado

Sunday, right after church, we headed to Colorado. In 77 1/2 hours, we were back at our RV in Mesa--after driving nearly 1700 miles. Sunday, we made it to Albuquerque. In the morning it was on to Colorado. This is a great view of one of the Spanish Peaks near Walsenburg.

We took a short walk in through our old Willow Creek neighborhood.

There was time for a good visit with our grandchildren.

And dinner with the family. Thanks for fitting us in on a busy evening.

Tuesday, we saw Kylie and John off to school

loaded the "stuff" we had in storage in Littleton into a U Haul truck

And drove south in a snow storm! Yuk, Yuk, Yuk.

I drove our truck and followed John in the U Haul.

There was a lot of wind and dust in northern New Mexico.

Finally, the sun came out and the rest of the drive into Albuquerque went smoothly.

By 2:30 this afternoon, we were back here in our RV home in Mesa. We have never covered that many miles in such a short time without getting on an airplane. It went well, but I don't want to do it again any time soon.

Hopefully, next winter we can sort through all these boxes and files and pare down even more. That was our goal in making the move.


  1. Pare down, pare down...I'm sure you will.

  2. Sounds like you had a great time in Colorado! I admit, though, that your trip is a tiring one, going all the way from Mesa! That required a lot of endurance! I think seeing your grandchildren made it more than worth it, though. That snowstorm looks scary, by the way. Glad you made it through that safely.
