The roads were some of the worst I have driven on in a long time. Two hundred miles at 40 miles an hour...in 4-wheel drive the whole time gets to be pretty agonizing. Such a good thing I had my awesome road tripping partner, Megan with me. We chowed on jerkey, slugged down lots and lots of coffee and jammed to our favorite tunes. We made it to Chris' in the middle of the night and were just as anxious to get out of that pickup as the dogs were.
But it was soooo worth it!! We had a wonderful week with Chris and I really, really didn't want to come back to SD. I don't even try to kid myself anymore, when it comes to family BS, I prefer NOT to deal with it. Moving is so much easier-LOL.
But we had to come back for now. Thankfully the trip home was with much improved road conditions. And in the daylight, so Megan snapped pictures of the magnificent Colorado scenery...

The horses and cats did fine in the care of a friend of ours, but were glad to see us. The cats practically tackled Megan and this morning Shooter was pretty adament that he get some attention. Now I suppose it is time to get back to reality...bummer!
