Day 7 - where are we again?

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
