So after a week of making lists and trying to get organized, we are about to head out on our road trip to Monument, Colorado. I can't believe I haven't seen my daughter since May. I'm really looking forward to the road trip with My Sweetie and celebrating my daughter's 28th birthday (a little early). I haven't been to Colorado since 1988. And the icing on the cake is going to be the 25° temperature drop.
I don't think I've ever been chilly in August in my entire life. I can't wait to see what that will feel like. I'll probably annoy everyone within hearing distance by strutting around and waving my arms while loudly proclaiming, "WOW! It's August and It's chilly!"
I'll take lots of pics and hopefully have lots of stories to tell. But be warned: I may just do a whole post about how I was chilly in August.

~~We are staying the night in Amarillo and then on to Colorado in the morning. Some people drive straight through in 10 to 12 hours. We are taking it easy.

Thanks! So far so good. A bit concerned about the "Watch For Rattlesnakes" signs at the rest stops.

while I was up north, I ran into some people checking the snake ID poster in the tourist info place. they were relieved that the snake they had a picture of was not a rattler afterall. hope any you find also turn out to be simply water snakes.

enjoy the cooler temps and your visit.

~~Any I find? I don't want to find any kind of snake ever! The cooler temps are delicious.
