Day 6: Take Me Home, Country Roads

It was a major bummer to leave. Colorado was so relaxing and peaceful. I could live in my tent forever! We left around 7:30 AM. We took Jodi's direction. We went south through Denver and Colorado Springs. We stopped in a ghost town called Ludlow. There was absolutely nothing there but a memorial to some miners that were killed in a massacre by their company's militia. We at lunch in Raton, New Mexico. It was so ghetto I could not have gotten out of there fast enough. Another storm started chasing us as we left New Mexico. The radio said flash flood warnings. But we were able to beat it home. We drove through the panhandle of Texas, where it doesn't matter your population, you still have a Dairy Queen. It only took us 15 and 1/2 hours to get home taking those directions. In all we drove 2,322 miles! We were exhausted again. I hope we can go back soon.

Our campsite is so lonely without the tents.

David is saving himself from a flood.

Pike's peak is the one with no trees.
