June 17

This was the last day of our road trip. Since it turned out to be such a long day, I postponed blogging about it until now.
We spent the night in a town in Colorado.  We were up at 6, and left shortly after. We continued on towards Denver.   Of course this meant driving through lots of mountains.  At one point we were more than 11,000 feet above sea level. We even saw snow on the slopes right next to the road. We eventually left the mountains to drive through miles of farms.  The road got flatter, and the snow covered mountains disappeared into the distance.   We drove about 16 hours, finally arriving at Lauren's house about 2:30 am.  It was very nice to be back in Wisconsin. 
The trip was amazing.  We saw such a variety of landscapes, cultures, and many memorable locations.  Thank you to all who were following the blog posts!
I will be back to posting only once in awhile now.
