Today we drove about 525 miles and set our clocks back to Mountain Time when we crossed in to Colorado.
Our route today took us north from Wichita to Salina KS, where we picked up I-70 and headed west towards home. We had a little more unseasonably cool weather this morning when we hit a rainstorm west of Salina. The prairie looked beautiful under the rainy skies.
We had a relatively "leisurely lunch" in Colby KS. We were buffeted by strong prairie gusts (it's like deja vu all over again) as we drove west and Don had to wrestle with the steering wheel to keep the bus on the road. But, we made it, safe-and-sound, to Denver a little after 4:00 PM local time.
We got our rooms, set some boundaries, then turned the kids loose on the 16th Street Mall in downtown Denver.
The kids had to be in the hotel by 9:00 PM, but we didn't do the room check until 11:00 PM, so they went to the pool, hung out, and straightened Gabe's hair (unfortunately, no one took a picture...).
Tomorrow is the last day of tour. We are going to get an early start and make our way back to SLC.
