I'm happy to report we had a leisurely drive today.
We only did 218 miles, and 4 hours!
We made our way up I-25 north through some pretty areas of Colorado.
We have a perfect spot at the Jefferson County Fairgrounds.
Electric & 30 amp hookup for $20/night.
Nothing fancy for sure.
We relaxed a bit and did some online computing
while we waited for my son, Austin to get off work.
All of a sudden the heavens opened up!
There was a severe weather warning.
We had thunder, pea sized hail, and torrential downpours.
The wind was fierce as well.
George ended up pulling the slides in to protect our slide toppers.
Just as the weather improved, Austin called us to let us know he was home.
We hopped in the truck and made our way the 20 minute drive to his apartment.
I am so proud of his place, I just had to take some pictures :-)
We found a good place to eat that was within walking distance of his place.
It was called Steuben's, and the food was great!
George had Mac & Cheese with peppers,
I had BBQ Brisket,
and Austin had a pulled pork sandwich.
He's looking great!
I wish we could have more time with him, but with his work schedule it's not possible.
We'll be back for sure! There's so much to see in this area.
Tomorrow we'll be heading east, stopping overnight in Grand Isle, Nebraska.
