Sitting in a McD's in Colorado Springs on a sunny morning - one of the relatively few times I've seen the sun once west of Lincoln, NB! I won't bore you with the gory details, but a new rain suit is definitely in my future.
Very successful time spent in several libraries along the way. finding exactly the kind of original source articles as I need for my book research. Leaving for beautiful Seven Falls in a few minutes, then past Pikes Peak and into the mountains via US24 - maybe to Price UT by night.
Many photos to follow soon. Gotta make hay while the sun is shining!!
