Better in Boulder

I was so excited to be able to go to Boulder for the day with a good friend and do some antique shopping. We did a little looking and she picked up some paintings her step-father had painted she had on consignment. (I liked them so much I was able to get them for a steal, literally.) Before you knew it food came to my mind she told me she knew of a great little Italian restaurant. Oh my word. Jon be jealous, amazing food, I have never had better Italian in my life. It was worth the drive for for that alone. The place is called Radda. Not only fun to say but fun to be at. Gorgeous view, service was great and did I mention the food. It is well worth the drive.

For those of you who have not had the luxury and I do say luxury lightly, of driving through Wyoming to Idaho. I thought I would give you a small taste of what we get to see on our scenic drive. Nothing..................................................
Rawlins is a interesting place to visit. We usually stop, quickly I might add for a treat, the potty and gas. We stretch our legs and quickly get back in the car and head on to our next stop, Rock
Springs, we are all in for a real treat now. The scenery along the way in amazing I might add. No trees, no mountains basically nothing to see but fences, rocks, grass and snow and my very favorite thing in the whole world to see on the wonderful drive along the way Truckers.
I caught a small hill in the distance and thought you might want to see the foliage and sagebrush that we are able to see. We were also lucky enough to have blue sky and wind on this trip, just a note we are usually lucky enough to have wind on the drive through Wyoming.

This is my least favorite part of the
drive. Truckers, they have a tendency to think they own the road. I know that not all of them think this just the one's that are on the road at the same time I am. I also had a feeling they did not like me taking pictures of them while they were driving.

We found this little treasure while at a truck stop. They have some (I will say this delicately) places for the truckers to stop and have their needs met. I figured they also needed a place for them to stop and repent. I had to have this picture. A Truckers Chapel inside a Truck bed. I still can't get over this. I have been back and forth this same route I don't know how many times and this is the first time I have ever seen this.
Yes this is how they really drive!
Beautiful, Beautiful Denver.....I am sure we will take route again.
with more memories to be made....we missed you Jon and Lindsay.....
