Terry & Dave Taylor

In Denver with Family

Denver, Colorado: Oh, thank you, Mr. RVer from Massachusetts, for starting your engine at 5:22a and warming it for 27 minutes.

Dave and I went on a five mile walk with Kris & Steve this morning along a mostly-paved trail following a creek. We followed the trail from the campground up into Manitou Springs.

There are several springs (note round brick building on right). This spring is Cheyenne Springs.
The water is called a "soda" spring as it is high in soda.

Myron Stratton drilled this spring in 1935. It also is a soda spring and produces 2 gallons per minute.

After our walk and showers, we met in town for coffee and breakfast. Dave had a conference call, which he had to take while sitting in our car... driving around to find a strong enough cell signal to place the call.

We hitched up and headed towards Denver. Kris snapped this photo with her phone as they passed us on I-25:


Dave pulled in front of my brothers house to spend the night. 15 seconds later, Kris began receiving text messages from her neighbors demanding tours!

At 6p, DT fired-up the generator. We put out the slides, put up the TV dish and opened the Magna Peregrinus for a one-hour open house. Cocktails were served. It was fun to meet the neighbors and fun to show-off our beautiful motorhome!

Kris made (from scratch) four different pizzas and a huge fruit platter for dinner. Both of their children came for dinner (with their significant others). It was wonderful to see our niece, Delaney, and our nephew, Michael.

Of course, we took a selfie.

Pedometer: over 17,000 steps; nearly 8 miles - plus 28 flights of stairs.

Until my next update, I remain, your Denver correspondent.
