61 miles, 2,057 total (although I think my total calculation has been progressively off somewhat)
We’re now starting to leave the flat prairies. Tomorrow, as we head into Pueblo, will give us a change of scenery.
Pueblo will be a culture shock for us . . . a city of 100,000 people.
Before dinner tonight a couple of us went to the local tavern here in Ordway. The rather ample, no-nonsense bar maid, explained the Colorado beverage to us . . . tomato juice mixed with beer (or, for the more sophisticated palate, Clamato juice and beer). She demonstrated her favorite drink . . . a shot glass of peach schnapps floated in a slightly larger glass filled with Red Bull. Down the hatch! Ahhhh!
Psst, this just for “L” . . . a beautiful sunset this evening . . . couldn’t help but think of the one you described to me. Thanks for all the good vibes along the way!
