Today we drove. That is all we did. We listened to Dessert Solitaire. Now we are in Omaha. I am excited to see all of my friends tomorrow!

Day 45: Denver to Omaha

Day 45: Denver to Omaha

There isn’t much to write about. We simply drove from Denver to Omaha. We left the mountains and adventure behind us and headed toward home. We listened to over half of Edward Abbey’s “Desert Solitaire” and plan on finishing it tomorrow. That’s pretty much it. Hands down, the most boring day of the trip.

Let It Go

Let It Go

“So come on, let it go Just let it be” – James Bay Most boring day of the trip. Nothing happened, but too early to write “the end”. I guess it’s a mental transition day. I did have a nice last Kimpton shower and coffee this morning. Then sat in the car all day. We also had a weird dinner. Great food, but bizarre place. Check in tomorrow for more thoughtful reflections on the trip.

End of the Line

End of the Line

“Well it’s all right, everything’ll work out fine Well it’s all right, we’re going to the end of the line” – Traveling Wilburys Today felt like the end of the line for #RTXVIII. The next two days we’ll be driving home. Back to our fairly normal lives. Molly doesn’t want us to reflect yet, but with all the adventure behind us it is hard not to. We did convince her to let us start working on some of the trip…

Denver

Denver

This morning we got to sleep in. I got to enjoy some tea. I was going to get iced tea but they didn’t have it so I was going to make it myself. I put the water in the cup. Apperaently either the water was way too hot which it didn’t feel like that or the cup was super thin because when I put the water in the cup melted and that was pretty cool! We then around 10ish got…

Day 44 and I can not believe all we have left is our usual stop ✋ at Herbert Hoover😞

Today we got up ☝at a kimpton and “enjoyed” coffee ☕ in the room. I love  hate coffee ☕ . I must get it from my mum. The we got ourselfs down to the lobby.

(I think she has a problem with coffee ☕). Then we walked around for…

Day 44: Denver

Day 44: Denver

Today we traded the sounds of water rushing for a mass transit system. We traded the smells of ponderosa pine for city garbage. We traded beef jerky for gourmet doughnuts. We traded the views of mountains and deserts for skyscrapers and a bustling downtown. We traded scents of wild flowers for food trucks. We traded our tents for a luxury hotel. We traded our hydro packs for pints of locally brewed IPAs. We traded natural beauty for sculptures of kidney…

Day 43 and we did the last hike of the trip and went to the last national park of the trip😝

My hips were sore. My legs were tired and I thought my feet could not carry me one ☝more mile. After a great 👍 night 🌙 of sleeping 😴 I really ☁(random cloud) mean it. Zoe got up ☝at 6:00. My mum got at 5:30. My dad got up ☝ at 3:30 and I got up☝right before 7:00. We got in our order for hiking: my dad /Fluffy with his green backpack Ol’ blue bob two. Then Zoe/Shooter with her…

Last Hike

Last Hike

This morning we woke up to a deer. It stayed near us all morning. It was pretty creepy. After packing up we headed back down. Sadly, this was the last time. Now all we have is Denver and driving. The hike down was beautiful. During it I thought about all of the hikes we’ve done, places we’ve been, things we’ve seen, and people we’ve met. It’s been amazing. We will only hike on the occasional trip to Starved Rock, Coyahoga…
