7:07 a.m. Leaving cabin.
8:00 a.m. gas in Poncha Springs, CO. $3.56/gal. $43ish. Sarah is being very territorial about the goldfish crackers. Now she’s unhappy with the lack of variety of juice options.
Mike and I are discussing the effect altitude has on boogers. They dry up and get stuck above the tree line.
9:00 a.m. saw deer drinking from Rio Grande River at Del Norte, CO.
9:23 a.m Near South Fork, CO, just stopped at what the kids call “the best rest stop EVER!” Free lemonade, cookies, brownies. A little old Mexican lady running it. I got conchitas, which she said were Mexican cookies. They tasted a little like licorice. I had to use the men’s room to wash my hands, because the women’s room was out of soap. Every little town we pass seems to have a liquor store and a church.
9:45 a.m. driving through Rio Grande National Forest. Beautiful. Tried to hold our breath through a tunnel. Couldn’t make it.
