Return to Five Weeks on the Road — Summer, 2016

Hays to Avon, Colorado

Wednesday, June 29

Thank goodness no bad weather overnight!  After a hot breakfast at the hotel, we set our sights for Avon, CO.  Again, more miles of corn…so much corn!  When we got to the Colorado welcome center, Barb recommended we try a restaurant in the nearby town of Burlington called Healthy Essentials.  Very good salad bar/soup/sandwich place to stop. (The Cafe was within an organic/health items type store. Among other things, they sold different olive oils and balsamic vinegars. I became intrigued with some very fragrant organic soaps and purchased a couple.)

After what seems like an eternity, we get to Denver.  So much traffic!  The mountains are so beautiful.







Then all of a sudden we top a rise on the interstate, and…wow!….Snow on the Mountain!  It was so beautiful.  Only an hour and a half and we will be in Avon.







We pull into Avon and find the Wyndham property.  WOW.  It is just amazing.  Everyone we have met here has been so kind and helpful. 










Tonight we went to Bob’s for supper.  Really cute place….all the pics of the wall were of Bobs… Spongebob, Bob Dylan, Bob the Builder….you get the idea!  The food was great.
