We arrived home last evening. The words on the card said, "Welcome Home"!
The flowers and the freshly baked muffins, were an extra special sight, and were placed there
by our daughter and granddaughter. We had been gone a long time. In fact, it was the first time
we had been away from home for as many days, and we were happy to be back.
Flowers and muffins were the best way to welcome this girl home:)
We had our motorcycles hauled across the country in this carrier.
We took planes to the beautiful state of Colorado.
There were eight of us. Four bikes with two passengers each.
My husband had planned the route we would be taking, each day for eight days. Miles and
miles of country, mountainous, canyon lined, and remote roads, were on our agenda.
We were blessed with gorgeous weather for the most part. But, we came equipped to travel
in all kinds of weather.
We rode in the sun filled days...
...when one could see for miles and miles, no matter what direction you looked.
And, yes, we traveled in cold, rainy weather one morning. Over the wet, mountainous roads we
went. I am not going to tell you that this part of the journey was just as much fun as the days ahead. However, this is where rain suits come in handy.:) And, yes, they did keep us dry.
We rode through breathtaking sunsets, when the world seemed to stand still and you found yourself
wishing that it would.
We took lots of breaks. Time to take pictures, stretch our legs, and drink lots of water.
talk about. Two of the couples were on adventures like this before. For my sister-in-law and I, it was our first time for a trip like this.
Personally, I have been a passenger on the back of a bike for many years of my life, but never
partook in a trip for more than two days at a time. A week in CO was in the making for quite
a while before we actually did it. It was a very special time, in every way for the eight of us.
The next week, we spent visiting family in Denver and at the Guest Ranch.
This particular evening, we stood silently, watching as the setting sun, lit up the western sky. It was impossible to truly capture it's awesomeness.
I will share a few highlights in the next few posts, if you want to stop back.
It seems like a long time since I've been in blog land. I have catching up to do, but I also have responsibilities and commitments that are demanding my attention right now.
Thank you so much for stopping back, especially after such a long break on my part.
