The tail end of our trip

We took our time getting ready Thursday morning. Beth and I went for a walk, ate breakfast, and drank our coffee on the back porch taking in the mountains for the last day.  We said goodbye to the beautiful Chalet and our peaceful time there.

We drove over to Frisco for lunch. We ate lunch at Bagalis. Everything I tried there was great. We walked around Frisco and got an afternoon snack to go from Butterhorn Bakery. I would highly recommend going there if you are ever in the area. We drove down to Colorado Springs and spent the night there. We stopped off at a park with a great splash pad and fountain.

Friday morning we went to see the Garden of the gods in Colorado Springs. 

It was gorgeous there. It reminded me of Sedona a little.

After lunch we drove to Dumas, Texas for the night. It was just the right amount of time to split the drive up. We found a great place for dinner and watched some of the opening ceremonies of the Olympics. The west texas sunset was great. 

Goodnight moon

After breakfast Saturday morning we headed east toward Oklahoma. We watched the temperature rise higher and higher on our journey down from Colorado until it was over a 40 degree difference. I've said I'm going to try to not complain about the heat...but...can I just say 108 is oppressively hot?! :)
Thanks so much for inviting us Anderson's! Colorado in the Summer was glorious. We loved it!
