Nancy and I arranged to have 5 days off from our camp hosting duties so that we could take a trip to Denver to visit with Jeff, Linda, Maya and Josie. We left early Thursday morning, the 12th, and drove all day to arrive in Denver at about 6:00 pm. We spent the next 3 days with them and returned to Cedar Breaks on Monday. Two long days on the road, but well worth it as we had a great time. The drive was almost entirely on Rt 89 and I 70 and was really quite spectacular virtually the whole way. Utah and Colorado are very special places, and the scenery made for a very pleasant trip. On the way back we ran into a quite a bit of rain most of the way.
Maya and Josie are just a delight and we love spending time with them, as well as with Jeff and Linda. Jeff is in a band and we got to see him do his thing Friday night which was a lot of fun.
On Saturday we took about an 18 mile bike ride in 98 degree weather along this really great bike path that goes by some of the nicest and most expensive properties in the area. It was a very pleasant ride, with the girls being towed by Jeff and Linda.
On Saturday we visited the Denver Botanic Gardens and they were out of this world. The best that either Nancy or I have ever experienced. Jeff and Linda liked it so much that they bought an annual membership. Very hot that day also, with temps in excess of 100 degrees, which is quite a contrast from the 60's and low 70's at Cedar Breaks.
Another post to follow on the tropical gardens section.
We had just a great time.
