We've been on the road for over a week now, and it's raining like crazy here in Denver. With flash flood warnings, it's turned out to be the perfect day to stay in, and a great time to bring you up to speed on our road trip. After spending our late arrival the first night near state line, we headed for our next stop, Las Vegas. Now I figure it's been about eight years or so since I've been to Vegas, so there's a lot that's new since then. We visited the Aria Resort, which we found to be edgy, artistic, and dramatically beautiful. A good example is the exterior of the poker room.
Day three we were back on the road heading for Utah, where I caught a glimpse of this All-American Gas Station.
Day four took us east on the 70 Freeway on one of the most beautiful drives I have taken in the United States, through Glenwood Canyon, Aspen, and Vail, Colorado.
Day five (Saturday) we finished the last leg of our drive to Denver and the Gem and Mineral Show, arriving early in the afternoon. We checked into the hotel where we are spending the week, and then headed over to the Coliseum to check out the event. It is here that I will leave the story until tomorrow. Let it just suffice to say that we are experiencing a lot of rain here! Glub glub. But still we are so grateful to be here. We love our life and our job!
We wish you all a beautiful evening, and stay tuned.
