Road Trip - part 2

Today we spent the morning in Colorado at my Dad and bonus-mom's house. They have a beautiful house surrounded by trees. Last night we saw two deer, but the pictures I took didn't turn out very well.

Since we were leaving after lunch, Bailey had to say goodbye to George. This involved playing fetch.

George loves to play fetch.

Bailey loves to play fetch with George, so it all works out.

Here's Rominal - watching the whole thing.

Time for our goodbyes.

Hugs and kisses. Emphasis on the kisses.

We left Colorado and drove to Casper, Wyoming. Upon entering Wyoming, we were greeted with a HUGE hail storm. I happened to be driving during this time, so I didn't get any pictures during the event. Everyone on the highway had to pull over and wait out the storm. The hail was very intense and we were quite concerned our windshield would not survive. Luckily, the van seems fine and there was no windshield damage either.

We stopped at the Wyoming welcome center and I took this picture of the hail in the parking lot.

It had hit them too.

Here's some pictures of the clouds as the storm passed.

I always thought that Texas was vast, but we drove for several hours and hardly saw any cities at all.

We have determined that there are not a lot of people in Wyoming.

I want to move here.

There were some strange creatures there though.

A jackalope.

And I guess they still have dinosaurs in Wyoming as well.

Who knew?

Tomorrow we drive to Grand Teton National Park. The cabin we have for the night does not have a television, so I'm guessing they will not have wireless either. So, this might be my last post for a bit.

Have a great week!

I'm pretty sure I saw that cloud from my plane when I was landing at DIA last night. We went around it.

You can tell from the Wyoming license plates that they either don't have very many people, the people don't have very many cars, or they see no need for unique license plate numbers.

I'm sorry I had to miss the family time in Colorado.

Yeh for Wyoming!! I love crossing Wyoming in June....Green grass, blue sky and whispy white clouds!! It sure beats a snow storm. I came to get the bread recipe to email to niece...the best bread. Enjoy your trip! Linda

This road trip makes me very jealous. These pictures are very good too. I want to go back again soon. Glad you enjoyed it so much. I can do with out the Bears.

We saw a moose at about the same distance at Custer State Park. I think they do that on purpose.

The "salitos" would make a great dinner for Christmas. As would some of the other recipes.

I have referred Tom and Mary to this site. Your vacation coverage is so well done I think we should all follow your example.

When I figure out how, I think I will start a blog too. We haven't been on a vacation in a long time and I don't have any pictures but may find some I scanned back when we did.
