Day 7 was long, mainly spent driving out of Kanab Utah to our overnight stop in Colorado. We found a GREAT deal at a GREAT hotel - the Evergreen Inn in Vail (excellent customer service and fab rooms with more closet space than I have at home!). Just what we needed after so many days in the car. Lots of nature mixed with fun shops and beautiful architecture. And you thought Vail was just for skiing.
This photo was taken right before our only scary moment of the trip. A few minutes after this photo was taken at a rest stop a huge moving truck came barreling down a hill toward us, swerving into the passing lane at the very last moment, so close I could see his nose hairs. Okay, not quite that close. But it was c.l.o.s.e.
Bye, Utah, you are beautiful!
Not much else to report, really, so I'll let the pics speak for themselves. Haley will tell you about our adventures in Colorado Springs tomorrow.
And just because I thought this was cool (Haley didn't care) the odometer got *this close* to 2400 as we reached the border of CO and KS. By the time we get home Wednesday night we will have covered almost 3000 miles. Go team BOGO Bowl! SB2YE747HRUX
Best Friends! Best Friends Animal Society is guided by a simple philosophy: kindness to animals builds a better world for all of us. A grassroots effort to place dogs and cats who were considered "unadoptable" into good homes.
They are obviously an outstanding organization that has stood out to Sara for years as a must visit. Their goals are right in line with BOGO Bowl and our mission. We were thrilled to take a tour of the sanctuary in beautiful Kanab, Utah. Best Friends is the largest sanctuary in the United States with 1,700 animals and over 33,000 acres.
We had a guided bus tour of Horse Haven, Bunny House, Parrot Garden, Piggy Paradise, and Wild Friends. Our stops included Cat World and Dog Town.
In Cat World the cats ruled taking over the place and walking across beams high above us. This is Slidell she can't use her back legs and slides to get about.
The visit to Dog world let us test out our command skills on one happy dog. He was more than pleased to sit and shake for us with the reward of a treat. If anyone wants a dog able to do stunts and jump as high as can be, Kira is your girl!
We are heading to BlogPaws and Best Friends this week! Our team will be stopping at a number of shelters and pantries along the way. This is where we will keep you up to date on all the fabulous BOGO Bowl happenings!
