On Top of the World!

2014 West then East, Colorado, Road Trip, States

Forty-one years ago when we were tent camping across the country on our honeymoon The Carpenters’ hit On Top of the World was high on the charts and being played frequently on FM stations across the country. It was a bit of an anthem for us. Today as we were traveling through mountain passes at altitudes of greater than ten thousand feet along the Flat Tops Trail Scenic Byway, we were on an emotional high! We dug out the silver iPod, found that song, and enjoyed a flashback to ’73!
