By Way of Colorado Springs

2008 West--35th Anniversary, Colorado, Road Trip, States

We finally caught up with our absentee ballots at the Jackson’s home in Santa Fe. Filling out our ballots and getting them into the mail was our first order of business. Then after a light repast at Las Chivas we headed north on I-25 through Raton Pass and into Colorado. We made a stop in Colorado Springs at the Van Briggle Pottery. We were too late for a tour but were able to peer through the windows to see pots at various stages of preparation. We’ve been Van Briggle fans for many a year and now after Karen’s months in the pottery studio at The Arts Center it felt a bit like a pilgrimage. We sustained ourselves with delicious ribs at the Front Range BBQ then completed the drive into Boulder, Colorado.

    While you did your voting our family got two feet bigger. Baby Jack was born at Bayfront at 1059 and has gotten better and better every minute since then. He’s home with us and Gram and Pop-pop comes in tonight. Gram stayed with the kids last night so John and I could vote. When we returned home Alex said, “I wish I could go vote!” Keep blogging, we’re enjoying your adventures.
