so in order to catch up to where we are now, I got Mom to keep on writing after her coffee and my whizz 

This is why I'm on the shitlist for awhile .............................hmmm I thought mom was over it already? 

I've been chewing on the straw to her water bottle too ..................at least she got over that 


we are now ready to leave this mountain motel where we stayed 2 nights, very reasonable and VERY clean which is super important to my Mom. I even got a bath here ...............she claimed I was dirty too??


it still a little cloudy over the mountain area but Mom says we'll be ok, we can't stay here forever and we really need to get down to sea level


To continue where I left off............

We left Ouray on the way to Salida a nonstop drive: 166 miles  (267 km) which means driving time: 3 hours, 18 minutes

 but of course, it took us much longer because Mom drives slow and stops a lot to take pictures


I thought it was no more switchback roads said Mom, but boy was she wrong .............


We are at Monarch pass which is widely considered one of the most scenic in Colorado, offering a panoramic view of the southern end of the Sawatch Range from the summit. During the summer, a tram from the parking lot at the summit carries visitors to the top of Monarch Ridge above the pass (at approximately 12,000 feet (3,700 m) above sea level),(it was closed due to the virus) allowing a wider view of the surrounding peaks. (Mom said the view is fine from here) 




they got some heavy-duty machines to get around in the winter here................



Mom was going to open her hood too but changed her mind when the guys in the jeeps just glared at her............ha



The bikers up here seem a little bit different compare to the ones we met before?




No matter how scary it has been (don't think it's over quite yet) for Mom to drive on these roads she says she's glad we did it because the views are so totally amazing, so we often park (Mom can't look while driving) just to take it all in (and for me to relieve myself


We're now ready to leave Salida and continue south ............unless Mom changes her mind, which is something you have to get used to traveling with her. That's why I'm the best travel companion because I go along with whatever, although I do wish she would find me more parks with GRASS.............everything here is covered in gravel and sticky little green stuff here and there..... I do not like it

behind that fence looks good to me................but again noooooo no no 








here's a story about how these little towns came about..............lots of mining then and mostly tourists now


SO off we go and hopefully, I'll be writing from New Mexico tomorrow


wet kisses to y'all

We slept quite well at Clines corner and had a great breakfast before continuing on to Texas         Both I and my Mom have come to the conclusion Texas has nothing to offer us. I can't stand the grass because every time I walk on it some ve...

Good Morning from Clines Corner where we spent the night. It has been raining all night and from what I can see it looks like it will continue all day too. I don't mind the rain at night it's kind of soothing to listen to, but it sure puts a damper o...

Yesterday was a really bad day...........(for Mom), Mom used up all the power in her PC and when she plugged it in it went poof? and why? somebody had chewed the cord? Oh well, I'm sorry I didn't know it was a big thing?  Mom thought it still could...
