Colorado Quickie

* Met Michelle from Colorado–in brief: Seven buckets of awesome, and she bought me lunch! (And gifts. I don’t know why, but the the gifts were so wonderful I mostly tucked them under my arm and ran with them–you CAN’T have my hand quilted sock bag back, you just CAN’T!) Pictures to follow next week–Michelle, Mate and I had a BLAST!

* While we were eating ‘High Tea’ (mmmmm…) there was a Denver native cycling by blasting Queen from a portable car speaker. Curious. Very curious.

* We took note of the following warning sign: Attention: Correctional facility 1/2 a mile away. Do NOT pick up hitchhikers.
I shit you not.

* The road from Denver to Granby is 3x as terrifying at night.

* Granby falls is a lovely little tourist trap. Mate and I fell in happily.

* *pant* *gasp* *wheeze* 3/10 of a mile my ASS! *wheeze* *gasp* *pant* Yes folks, the air IS that thin–but the little hike was so worth it. Did I mention pictures when I get home?

* We’re off to visit friends now–I’m going to spend all Monday catching up on blogs! (Am looking forward to it!)

    On the road between here and YS's college there is the same sign: Prison nearby, do not pick up hitch-hikers. Then when you get out of "prison range" there is a sign letting you know. Presumably that means you can now pick up hitch-hikers.
    Glad to hear you are having a wonderful time.

    Bravo! What fun for you! And now I know not to try to hitchhike around prisons.

    Waiting eagerly for photos.
