I'm writing this from a hotel in Colorado Springs. Been up (yawn) since 4 am finishing up the talks and panel questions for the Self-Reliance Expo, so I'm a little on the wiped side.
Just some photos of the day's travels:
Lake Coeur d'Alene, just flying over the southern end.
Coming down near Denver, I was struck by the perfect symmetry of this cloverleaf. Quite pretty from the air.
Taxiing to a stop. In the exact center of the photo (hard to see, sorry) is the white peaked rooftop of the airport, designed to resembled the snow-covered peaks of the Rockies. (It was a hazy day, so the real peaks weren't very visible.)
They're putting me up at this swanky and incredibly friendly hotel. Nice!
Hotel stays are a rare, rare thing in my life (last year's trip to Florida was my first hotel stay in eight years), so stuff like this tickles me pink.
From my hotel window is this beautiful view of the Rockies. The tall peak is Pike's Peak.
Shortly after posting this, I'm attending a "mixer" downstairs to meet the other speakers as well as the staff of the Expo. My, doesn't that sound sophisticated?
But I'm limiting myself to one glass of wine. Alcohol and lack of sleep don't mix.
