Today we celebrated our 52nd wedding anniversary … 18,993 days of "marital bliss" (at least for me)!
Leaving Ogallala, we headed west on I-80, for the first time seeing both a pick-up towing a fifth-wheel towing a boat
We soon left I-80 and headed toward Denver on I-76,
Then reality struck … 20 miles of jaw-rattling pavement!
Over the next nearly 80 miles we alternated between smooth pavement and road surfaces we'd like to forget.
There were signs of the energy industries we grew up with
At one of the rest areas we stopped at was an interesting sculpture entitle "Metamorphosis"
There was a lone fisherman,
Then there were the cattle feed lots … whose "aroma" can be smelled from a long way off.
About 50 miles north of Denver, we got our first glimpses of the Rockies … through a bluish haze created by the smoke from the huge fires north of Durango.
This evening we enjooyed dinner at Dave and LaDonna McCleish's (friends from our 2011 RV trip to Alaska) home.
Driving back to our motorhome, the temperatures were still in the 80os and when back aboard the winds picked up buffeting our parked coach.
