I made it all the way to Colorado. And I did it three days ago. I've been relaxing here in Fort Collins the past few days and tomorrow I make my way back to Ann Arbor. I'll post more when I get settled back in on Tuesday or Wednesday. For now I leave you with this:
The beautiful Poudre River here in Fort Collins. It goes through some of the Rockies and you can actually tube down the thing in a good portion of it.
