On the road again....




...oh I just can't wait to get on the road again.....
Me & Mr. B love, love, love road trips. And tomorrow, we're headn' off again.



Just to Denver. Morrison actually. Outside of Denver. Where the Red Rocks Amphitheater is. Lots of rock concerts. Lots of red rocks..beautiful,,,

Red Rocks is a geologically formed, open-air amphitheatre set in the Rocky Mountain Foothills. The amphitheatre's unique features include two 400-foot monoliths and a naturally occurring theatre set on a mountain stage. This setting, which seats 9,450 people in 70 rows, provides perfect acoustics and has attracted performers worldwide. The amphitheatre, completed in 1941, is part of the 818-acre Red Rocks Park, located 15 miles west of Denver. Red Rocks Park and Amphitheatre hosts nearly one million day visitors and concert goers each year from all over the world.(see pretty pictures..)







Can you believe this is where my Grandson's Hight School graduation was held?? Beautiful!!

It "normally" takes folks about 8 hours to make the trip. Yeah. They never met us. Not only does Mr. B actually drive THE speed limit, he pulls off to the right when crabby-road-hoggie-in-hurry-people tailgate.......

...I've been known to see something I've not seen before and shreek..."Oh! Can we stop there?? " Or...."look! a Colorado garage sale!" ......"Do you think that Wal-Mart has anything on sale??"



And, so ,yes, we take a long time...and getting to our loving destination...but we reallllly enjoy the journey...and isn't that what it's all about?
Have a safe and happy Labor Day week-end and don't forget to put away those white shoes....

...oh what the heck, forget the rules.......Wear 'em all year!

I am so jealous...partied at Red Rocks many times when living in Evergreen, what a beautiful place for a concert. The canyon road to Morrison is so beautiful. Take lots of pictures so I can drool some more.
