We left Grand Junction, CO about 9:00 am this morning and drove toward Denver, CO. We got just passed Vail and the traffic almost stopped. We crawled for about 20 miles, it took over 1.5 hours to go those miles, needless to say the sun was out and hot. No shade to crawl into, so yes I have a sun burn. Mom got a little red too. We stopped at Denver to eat lunch at 2:00pm then got back on the road and drove to Cheyenne WY. where we are staying at the F.E. Warren, AFB. Steve asked for a room with two beds and we got a complete house. This is by far the best place we have stayed on our trip, make that any trip. The buildings are from 1867( This base has quite the History it's self.) and when we walked up the stairs I wasn't sure what we were getting into.
Steve opened the door to a complete living room, 2 love seats, a coffee table, a chair and ottoman, a desk and TV with DVD player sitting on an antique credenza and three lamps.
You walk around the corner to the dining room table and 4 chairs
and strait into one bedroom with twin beds.
Turn the corner and you have the full complete Kitchen(except for Food) on the left
and a bedroom with full sized bed on the right. Strait ahead is the bathroom.
This kitchen has a stove, full sized refrigerator, a Microwave and dishes, pans and bowls just about anything you would need to cook. This is almost the size of our house. Sorry the pictures are dark, Mom was already sleeping and I didn't want to disturb her with the lights.
After we brought our luggage in Steve took us to Red Lobster for dinner to celebrate our 30 Th Anniversary today. It was wonderful, The waiter was very nice and helpful, making sure to take notes about my diet so I don't get sick. That is always nice when you have several restrictions. I was good and ordered the Salmon with steamed Broccoli and a garden salad. I really wanted the lobster and shrimp but I refrained. Steve had a steak and shrimp scampi and Mom had Shrimp Bruschetta.
Tomorrow we are off to Rapid City and Mt Rushmore.
