Its been a long day. Our alarm went off at 4am this morning and started out very rainy first leg of the trip back to Denver. When we woke up it was dry outside, when we left 30 minutes later it was pouring. I do miss a good rain! The sound, the smell, the feel…
Not to be out done Denver felt compelled to welcome us back with our favorite thing ever…snow! Gee, thanks Denver! Ever hear the saying “April showers bring May flowers”? It doesn’t say anything about snow!
The snow was actually extremely beautiful today and our flight was on time so its all good. Speaking of flights. On the plane I do one of three things – sleep, read, write. Today I wrote. Nothing even remotely exciting to most – I made lists. Lots of lists!
I used up half my notebook deciding where all our money went, what I needed to do with my day and places we need to travel. The travel bit was prompted by the Southwest napkins of all the places they fly. Our list looks something like this…
Yosemite National Park – CA – June
Sequoia National Park – CA – June
Salt Flats – UT – June
Napa Valley – CA – June ?
Lake Tahoe – CA/NV – June
Las Vegas – NV – June/Summer 2014
Mount Rushmore – SD – July
Badlands – SD – July
Black Hills – SD – July
Yellowstone National Park – WY
Grand Canyon – AZ
Columbia River Gorge – OR
Whistler – BC
Niagara Falls – NY/BC
Arches National Park – UT
Appalachian Mountains – WV/VA
Denali National Park – AK
It seems like a long list – but considering we’ll be cutting it almost in half this summer I should probably be expanding on it! Have you been to any of these places? Do you recommend anything special? What are we missing on our list?!
BTW – I am exhausted from traveling and work and everything else – hopefully this post makes sense. I’m laying on the floor to write it and I literally dozed off a few times. Rather sad considering out short this post is!
