It took us 20 hours to get from MN to our destination in CO and we fought very strong cross winds the entire way. I spent Wednesday in the school and on Thursday Mom and I spent a few hours driving around Rocky Mountain National Park (see pictures below). Thursday evening we went to look at my new apartment - the one my new boss recommended. It's pretty much close to perfect. It's a two-story, two bedroom townhouse with a garage, dishwasher, washer and dryer... The 2nd story has an amazing view of the mountains from two sides! And it's in my price range! I spoke to the owner and I'm all set!

We were in CO for two days and we just drove another 11 hours to get to Amarillo, with another 6 hours tomorrow to get home. I'll spend a couple of days at home (TX) and then I drive another 22 hours back to MN.

All I can say is... it's a good thing I love my car.

Just outside of Rocky Mountain National Park we saw elk...

And of course the mountains...

And one of my fave critters, moose...

I'll be living 20 minutes from there.

Uhm yeah. It's pretty much awesome.




  1. Oh my, I'm so happy for you! Everything is coming together for you and you deserve it!

  2. So exciting! I'm happy for you...and maybe a little bit jealous....
