Do you like road trips?
I sure do!
And I still do after 3800 miles of highway.

First Photo of the Trip
Not an Auspicious Beginning!
The Ever-Patient and I had not done
a serious road trip in a very long time.
We had the brilliant idea, that
since we were going on a cruise out of Seattle,
we should drive to Seattle for our jumping off point,
visit friends in Idaho on the way,
explore Vancouver Island after the cruise,
and whip over to Calgary to visit the family
on the way home.
Might not bite all that off again on another trip!
We decided to ease into it by driving 107 miles
to Terry's sister's home in Breckenridge.

There are few places more beautiful than Breckenridge
in this world, let me tell you!
Breckenridge, Colorado, USA
So we began our summer adventure
by doing a familiar and favorite thing
walking along the Burro Trail,
(encouraged by hopeful buddies).
Both Rufus and Gracie are feeling their ages,
so maybe next time Little Buddies.

Here are some photos from a fabulous walk!
