I'm making an entry while I have Internet access, because I expect we'll camp tonight... perhaps near Black Canyon of the Gunnison. Unless storms threaten, because Cliff and I don't do tents in the rain very well.
Yesterday we took a jeep tour from Salida; we'd done it several years ago, and enjoyed it, so Cliff suggested we do it again. Only in a jeep can you get to those breathtaking views in the Rockies. But only in a jeep can you jar your bones and rattle your teeth to the extreme, as we did yesterday, also. I must say Cliff and I took it with less complaining than the two teens in the family who went with us, though. In one day, we experienced heat, cold, rain, sunshine, and hail... enough hail to turn the ground rather white, at the top of the mountains. I'll have pictures to share when I'm at home.
I just hope I don't meet up with any bears tonight. Wish me luck.
Oh, a message to relatives who might call Cliff's cell phone: He swears he packed his phone charger, but we can't find it anywhere. And we haven't been able to find a mobile charger that works for his phone. So, if you can't reach his cell, it's probably dead.
