We decided to head out a day early to cut the drive in half. So we left Casa Rancho around eleven today, destination Salida, Colorado. I guess we are ahead of the snow. Forecasts are calling for Winter Storm Warning tonight back at Cash Rancho. But we had dry road 90% of the time on the way here. There was a dusting of snow on the pines.
The Aspen are changing, more photos to follow.
We stopped in Fairplay for lunch. And found a cute little place where they had that Colorado Mountain Town C A S U A L customer service (translation - 25 minutes to make sandwich).
But we were able to replace a soup mug we bought at a pottery store and had a chance to take this photo for cultural literacy purposes.
Quick, beautiful drive into Salida followed.
After a great dinner at a quirky restaurant called The Windmill, we are holed up in the Holiday Inn, watching Dancing with the Stars.
Much shorter drive for tomorrow into the Promised Land.
On a side NOTE.............................surprise of the night on Dancing With the Stars.................Kelly Osbourne.
