Today , Oct.11,2013, Our 2nd Wedding Anniversary..Drive from Cortez to Glenwood Springs..The most scenic drive yet. Thought nothing could surpass the million dollar hwy  Staying at the Historic Colorado Hotel.  Dinner was a disappointment. I never complain,  but lets just say,, they did not charge us. this place kind of reminds me of " The Shining " Jack Nicholson" remember?
O.K. tomorrow we will hit the hot springs..and I'm determined to find fresh Colorado Trout or lamb..

Glenwood Springs  20,000 pop elevation 7000
Very Pleasant Town.. We love the AmtraK station ...could hop on and take the 2:30 to S.F.

Sat. Oct. 12
Walked where Colorado river meets the Roaring Fork River.
Visited marijuana shop - see pics - very interesting, counters of stuff, drinks, chocolate bars, infusions,eye-drops, salves and about two dozen jars full of different strains. No purchase allowed by general public till January. Non-medicinal purchases taxed 40% more.  But no problem finding "right" doctor for certificate and indeed several business cards in evidence so you can make appointment and go through full consultation.."I'm ill Doc, gissus a prescription". Gotta say it's the way to go whether you like it or not, what total nonsense past 40 odd years have been on this silly matter, thousands languishing in jails, billions spent on suppression. Only thing T. Lleary said I completely agreed with..."Why should the whisky-drinking cop persecute the pot-smoking youth?"

On checkout remarked to crisply attired receptionist doesn't anyone make any sartorial effort whatsoever when staying at your venerable hotel, reply was "Yes, you could be in MacDonald's couldn't you". Can't think of any other nation that can conspire to look so absolutely.....dreadful.

Enjoyed the videos...almost got car sick !
FYI , Brandi - To get a better shot, hang out the window (have Simon tether you first ).
Great shots of the winery and 4 corners. Is Rebecca the St. Bernard ?
Can't wait to see/ read about your Stay at Glenwood springs !!!!
Texas beat OU !!! Hook-Em !!! Simon that is like Liverpool beating Manchester.
Be safe and watchout for Black Ice !!!

I reread your posted comments ... sounds like a real bummer of a meal with getting comped was barely a consideration.

Simon - I decrypted your remark about "Joadian" ...as in the Joad Family and their epic quest / travels from Dust Bowl Oklahoma to the land of Fruits and Honey - California. John Stienbeck would be proud. Hope you don't venture onto the Grapes of Wrath Vineyard.

Also, The Shining was filmed in Colorado maybe at Glenwood...I will google it.

Primero segridad !!
Alf
