first day   Leave a comment

we left North Liberty Iowa at about eight fifteen on Sunday morning heading to Colorado
At one thirty we stopped in Kearney Nebraska to put fifteen gallons of gas in my tank  Paying $3.95 a gallon.  Costing $60

we ate lunch at a Carlos O’Kelly’s in Kearney and heading on ward to Colorado.
The time changed at the Colorado border and we drove to Sterling to use the Rest Stop bathrooms and fill up the gas tank again.

this time gas we $4.19 a gallon and I put seven and a half gallons in my car, costing me $32

we drove, I drove the entire way, going mostly 85 and 90 miles per hour  ( the interstate allows a person to go 75 in Colorado)

we reached Highway 32 and the speed limit was reduced to 65 and we reached Loveland.  We drove through it and went on a winding twisting and turning road for twenty-two miles going 20-40 miles per hour the entire way.
I was thankful I was driving because I would have been full of motion sickness if I hadn’t been.

And while Estes Park is pretty neither Kathy nor I can figure out what the big deal is.
Our sister Carolyn and her daughter Jackie both rave about the city.
But we just got inside the city and while the mountains are nice, this doesn’t hold a candle to Utah.
