On our way to meet friends and explore the Canadian Rockies. We left late Tuesday (1pm) due to spending most of Monday getting Sally’s passport renewal in process with a passport expediter/ courier. The old one expired April 4th 2015, unbeknownst to us. 6 hrs later and $429 poorer (not including the $200 Federal Government renewal fees), we recommenced our preparation activities. The good news is that Sally’s passport will be shipped to our friends Rich and Rennie in Spokane and we will collect it when we arrive!
Small delays aside, we had a lovely drive up the Poudre Canyon, over Cameron Pass (where the aspens are beginning to turn), through North Park, over Rabbit Ears Pass, through Steamboat Springs, past my absolute favorite ranch gate and arriving at Dinosaur National Monument, Green River Campground after dark.
