We took a flying trip to Norfolk, Nebraska as Terry needed some combine parts and a bracket for the suitcase weights for one of the tractors. Since we were both ready for a short trip off we went.
The desert between us and Grand Junction is extremely green. ( You can see Wild Horse Mesa in the background — it is the last green bowl shaped mesa just before the blue sharp lines of Grand Mesa)
We have had and are still having lots and lots of rain. Very nice for making the world fresh and lovely.
We got to Grand Junction as morning was coming into full-light. This is a very quick photo of the Book-cliffs which surround Grand Junction on one side.
Glenwood Canyon was beautiful waking up to a day of full-speed-ahead traffic.
Driving through the Johnson side of the Eisenhower tunnel.
We live 5 hours from Denver. At this point we are about two hours away. This a horrible mess come ski-season. The traffic slows to a 30 m.p.h. or LESS crawl on Sunday afternoon as people try to come back from a weekend of skiing.
Taking the back roads and staying off the Inter State
This CAN BE a bleak trip, but we enjoy the farms and ranches.
It was sugar beet harvest
And soybean and
All the way from Colorado to Norfolk.
We cheered and clapped and gave everyone two thumbs up for being able to get their crops in.
That night we stayed in Ogalla, Nebraska —
Getting up early the next morning we we found lots of salvage yards
along our route.
Just what we were looking for!
