We decided to leave Las Vegas the afternoon of October 20th and get a jump start on our over 2,000 mile drive to the eastern part of Tennessee. Three hours later, we spent the night in Cedar City Utah.
So when we were planning a trip to Tennessee a couple of months ago, it was decided to make it a “Road Trip“. A date of October 22 was set to begin our journey, but in true “Debbie” fashion, we left 2 days earlier!
The next morning was our first long day of driving. Destination, Denver Colorado.
After heading north on I15, we did see some beautiful scenery driving west on I70 through the States of Utah and Colorado.
Fall is definitely in Utah!
Apparently, this is a hot spot for the Native Americans in the area to sell their handmade items to tourists.
As we drove through the Rockies, it was evident that ski resorts may very well be opening soon.
A special treat for me after arriving in Denver was the chance to visit with a dear friend of mine. This was the first time in 37 years that we’ve seen each other.
I am reminded of a road trip we took to Provence France when I see the moon over the snow covered mountains of Colorado as I did in the Haute-Alps de Provence. (you can read that story by clicking here)
A great way to end the day……wouldn’t you say?
