I’m going to try to sort this out. I swear I blogged the day before yesterday, but so much happens, I’m not completely sure.
When we last left our lovely posse, we had arrived in Salida and reunioned with our boys. On day 2 in Salida, we started with, what else: breakfast, including copious amounts of coffee and talk.
This day included time on the river with River:
a picnic in the park
watching the boys in the playhole (gotta love that river rat term)
and viewing from the Boathouse.
Tuesday morning brought sad goodbyes as we all headed off in different directions:
Ben and Kirsten headed back with their canines to Loveland for school and work. El and Glenda headed to Denver to go back to Murfreesboro and Knoxville. Sam went back to work as an Arkansas River Ranger. Amy and I headed west and north to get Amy ultimately to Orcas Island off the coast of Washington State.
So we now pick up mine and Amy’s adventure through the Black Canyon of the Gunnison.
Rolled into Grand Junction, Colorado, to a charming little hotel and Italian restaurant. I will go as far as Salt Lake City with Amy tomorrow (via Dinosaur National Monument), and send her off the rest of the way on her own.
Hooooooge shoutout to my house and dogsitters Katie and Elliot. And cow/donkey/chicken sitters. You two rock!
One more day of adventure, then back to Employment Discrimination and Legal Research.
Thanks for reading!
