Approximately 6:45 AM Sunday September 5th Adam and myself left for a 2 day road trip that would end in a beautiful suburb of Denver called Broomfield, Colorado. (Which by the way is number 19 on the Best Places to live in America according to Money Magazine)
We decided to drive through St. Louis, Missouri to visit the Gateway Arch. We didn't anticipate the 3 and a half hour wait it would take for us to make it to the top. Apparently Labor Day weekend is one of their busiest weekends of the year. Lucky us. Nonetheless, I'm glad we went.
We drove 2 more hours then stopped and stayed in a hotel in Columbia, Missouri. The next morning Adam made me a waffle in the waffle maker and it was the best damn waffle I've ever had. We then continued to drive on by far the most boring interstate in the U.S. I-70 West....through Kansas....
flat, flat, flat, WINDY, Kansas
Next stop Salina, Kansas. Where we ate at this cute little place I saw on the Travel Channel's Chowdown Countdown.
We finally made it close enough to see the Rocky Mountains. Too bad they were so hard to see because there was a forest fire....LAME.
New life. New state. Ahhh Sweet Home Colorado :)
