|1120 miles in 2 days isn't something that I want to do on a regular basis. I spent the first nite at a very nice rest area on RT 287 maybe 60 miles south of Amarillo, Texas. This is a new rest area and Texas really outdid itself on this one. I got an early start again and was on the road by 6:30am. RT 287 is a mostly four lane, well maintained road thru Texas range land with very little traffic. That's my kind of road. It was so much more pleasant of a drive than the Interstates. At Dumas I got on RT 87 west which took me to I25N and on to Denver. The scenery improved dramatically as I got closer to Denver. Dallas/Ft. Worth is a traffic zoo, in my opinion. It is my plan to avoid big cities like Houston and Dallas/Ft. Worth as much as possible with the rig. I can manage it, I just don't want to.
I'm going to spend some time here in Denver with my son, Jeff and his fiance Linda. I'm not sure how long I'll stay or where I'll go next. That will evolve over the next several days. We may go to Rocky Mountain National Park today and check out the local Elks Club RV Park along the way. It's a beautiful morning in the mid 60's and I'm sitting in Jeff's back yard doing this post listening to the birds. Denver is a neat place, as big cities go, and Colorado is just spectacular in places. I intend to spend a good bit of time in Colorado over the next several years and hopefully get to see Jeff and Linda much more than when I lived in Roanoke. Very special people!
No pictures yet, but I should get some good ones today if we go to Rocky Mountain Park.
Happy Fathers Day to any fathers out there.
