The Cabin

Today was a very special day.  Bob and Suzy invited us to join them at their cabin, which is located in a very remote location in the Rockies.  What a special place.  The cabin is way off a lightly traveled mountain road and up against a federal wilderness area.  Their son Tim was with them.

Shortly after we arrived, Bob prepared some buffalo burgers for lunch (they were delicious), which was the perfect meal for this wilderness setting.  After visiting a while we went for a walk but were careful not to move too fast in the thin air.  Of course, their two dogs headed for the only water around — a watering tank for cattle.  The scenery was spectacular and you could see for miles.  This is truly a special place and we are glad they shared it with us.

That evening we drove to one of the remote (very remote) towns in the area for dinner.  To give the reader an idea of just how remote this town was, we had to drive for 15 miles along a dirt road (this was the short-cut).  The town itself had no paved roads.  We had an excellent meal in a rustic setting.  We had a long drive home and had to cut it off sooner than we wanted.  We said our goodbyes and headed out for a two hour drive through the Colorado high country.  It was close to 11:00 PM when we got back to the coach.

All in all, it was a great day.
