on the road again

Kansas was flat and long……… The sign below is for the OZ winery.  We contemplated stopping in for a tasting, but decided to push right along instead.

After a long day driving through the Kansas plains, we finally crossed the border into Colorado.  We were greeted by heavy winds and a ton of snow flying all around us.  The visibility was pretty bad, but we moved along very slowly and pulled over as needed.

We stopped for a warm lunch of Organic split pea soup and toast.  Thanks again to our awesome camp stove we are able to enjoy warm food on a cold road trip!

Henry has done really well this whole journey, but I think yesterday finally got to him. He didn’t like driving through the storm and I am pretty sure he thinks we are driving him to a new home.  The only other time he has been on long car rides is to be given away.  It breaks my heart.  I wish he new all the fun that lies ahead!

Speaking of fun, we are staying with Taylor’s sister Charlotte in Denver.  She lives here and we are loving her neighborhood and all the cool things near by.  Some of those cool things are big ski resorts which is where she and Taylor are right now.  I was going to ski as well but the high is supposed to be 9 degrees with heavy winds and snow.  Not my kind of skiing weather.  So instead I am hanging back with Henry.  There is still fun things to explore on foot.

I hope everyone has a safe and happy new year.  I am not sure what our plans are tonight, but I think I am cooking up a dinner for us all.  Then we are back on the road again tomorrow.
