Day 30 Road Trip- June 18, 2008

Day 30 Road Trip- June 18, 2008We had some major excitement today- apparently T.W. decided she wanted to see the sights up close and personal so she threw herself off the motorcycle while we were cruising at “an excessively high rate of speed”! We had to pull over and I trekked on down the mountain pass to pick her up! Crazy girl! We think she was suffering from altitude sickness and wasn’t in her right mind!!

Day 30 Road Trip- June 18, 2008

“Woohoo…. We’re in Kansas!” (I scream sarcastically) We are now in Colby (and no it’s not the cheese). We had an awesome steak dinner and we’re gonna spend the night. According to the hotel clerk- there was a tornado about an hour east of here. (Which would explain the high winds the last 40 miles of the ride) I’m glad we didn’t decide to try and go further.

Kansas Landscape- Wow- if it weren’t for the curvature of the earth, I would swear I could see the St. Louis Arch from here…

The Long and Winding Road…

Day 29 Road Trip- June 17, 2008

Ok- so it’s not really “winding”- actually it’s fairly straight and you can see for miles…. and miles…. and miles…. If you look hard enough, you can see Colorado! Wow- our day sure started out hot in SLC. But as we went up Parley’s things cooled down a bit, and stayed quite nice until we were nearly in Vernal, UT. Then it got hot again… We had a great ride, nearly the complete day was spent on US Highway 40. It’s quite a scenic ride!

Welcome to Colorful Colorado…. that has to be the best sign yet on this trip!
Day 29 Road Trip- June 17, 2008

The skies over Colorado started looking pretty obnoxious. We managed to only get a little sprinkling of rain. We are now in Steamboat Springs, Co, and in the morning will head on to Kansas. (ugh… Kansas!)
