Our second day is always more fun than the first because we get out of the congestion and traffic of the east and we are off of the interstate or seeing things we don’t normally see. We left the hotel at 8:15 AM, filled up the truck, got breakfast and headed west. Although we were traveling on I70, we were on the lookout for churches, barns or anything else of interest. Since it’s flat in Kansas, we were able to see the steeples for these churches.
Somewhere in eastern Colorado we saw this plane flying low. We thought he was probably cropdusting, but I never saw any spray. He was pretty low when he flew over us.
We stopped in Aurora to get gas, ice and lunch. Had to fortify ourselves to get through Denver. There was lots of traffic but it kept moving. Once we were west of Denver the ooohhhs and aaahhhs started.
We finally got to the Courtyard in Grand Junction at 9:00 PM. Once again we were too tired to get back in the truck to get dinner so we ate at the hotel.
