I think Suzie and I are in. Drove home from the San Luis Valley yesterday afternoon and it took about an hour longer than the usual two hours from Johnson's Corner to Denver due to HEAVY traffic on 285. In fact, it was bumper to bumper, stop and go from halfway up Crow Hill to the stoplight on the other side. No big, slow trucks or anything, just massive amounts of folks heading back to the front range. What fun!

I didn't know you had a 40?

Looks like you could use a front bumper?

Yep, unfortunately the traffic home is going to be bad. the last couple of Sundays on my way home from work in Idaho Springs, it has been pretty slow. But, traffic never seems as irksome when I'm sitting in my 40.

I might take the frontage RD route into Idaho Springs and then the scenic route over Squaw Pass back home. I'll scout that this week and see if it's all passable.

We have done that exact thing several times in recent weeks - get on the frontage road at the US 40 cutoff at Empire, then take 103 over Echo Lake.

It's an okay view going over Echo Lake:

One day away....

Barring anything silly from happening, we should be there. Newly rebuilt engine is getting broken in on the trip home to CO, and so far so good. Even stopped to have dinner in Santa Fe with a friend...

No, the green one isn't coming with us, unfortunately.

See you all tomorrow!
