Denver and Cheyenne: Running and History
|Only 4 Minutes to Set up the First Time!|
We went to the REI store in Denver to look at camping equipment and running gear. It only took 4 minutes to set up an REI MSR tent. We're thinking about doing some back country camping someday and wanted to try it out. More than one person told us they have the same tent and love it while we set it up.
|Red Rocks Entrance, Denver|
We stopped by Red Rocks in Denver, but couldn't get in to see the amphitheater because a show was getting ready to start. We saw a live snake caught in some netting - a good reminder to keep my eyes open for snakes because we walked by it without seeing it on our way to the Red Rocks entrance.
|Want an Earth Roamer!|
We stopped at the EarthRoamer shop to look inside one of these $400,000 vehicles. They're self-sustainable. It's fun to imagine going off-road in one.
Now we're staying at an RV park in Cheyenne, Wyoming. The wifi isn't great here so I'm rushing to put my post together before I lose my connection again. Rush, rush!
From the RV park, I ran 5 miles yesterday. I found a town path to run on that had Energi Playworld park exercise equipment on it. I tried the balance disk, but only for a bit because I forgot that I'd seen it there and I'd already done some strength training in the RV. It was a little crowded in our RV where I was doing push-ups in the hallway. Umm, honey, can you wait to open the bathroom door so I can finish my push-ups, please?!
|Ft. Laramie Barracks|
Yesterday, we visited nearby Fort Laramie. It was a nice, quiet place to walk around and see the old buildings from the 1800's. It was dog friendly, too, so Zoe got to walk with us there.
Later, we stopped to see some ruts left by the pioneer's wagons. Zoe is sitting in the ruts left in the rocks and pondering the bravery of the pioneers...
