The evening was spent in Seibert, Colorado I don't have some pictures in seq for some reason. This is one of my best pictures, I love old cars, even if someone would consider them junk..
WE try to get out and walk, the wind was up but I was surprised at the size of the wheels on this grain hauler.
This is the back side of the grain elevators. I wondered how they moved the train cars, I never see an engine except when they are pulling away. They use a Farm tractor to position the train car for loading.
I Just wanted to back up and show this six lane highway into Russel. We walked strait across and back for breakfast. He had to stop for one car. Not much traffic.
Just before coming to the Colorado Border we got one shot of an oil well.
There is something else interesting about the plain states. The openness allows you to see an entire train, no matter how long it is. Also something unique, when you see a town coming up you notice it starts as a town immediately, it doesn'g fade in. When you drive out of town it doesn't fade out, it is behind you no urban sprawl.
In the middle of these vast farms, you can see a farm house in the distance. Most of the time it is surrounded by some trees.
Now we are back on track, here we are welcomed to Colorado.
The night is spent in Shady Acres or Grove RV Park. Here I tried to wash the bugs off the windshields. To be ready for out trip into Colorado Springs.
In Colorado slowly you notice the ground starts to swell more, giving rolling hills and now cattle take preference to crops.
I loved this lonely ranch house. In a Copse of cottonwoods.
I cannot tell, but I think this is cows and Sorgum grain.
WE have been seeing Pikes Peak for some time, but this is a shot of the Mountain with Colorado Springs in the fore ground. Our goal is the USAF Academy here.
At the Academy they welcomed us with open arms, well not open arms but they did welcome us.
Now we are home again, this time aboard the Air Force Academy at Colorado Springs, Colorado. Sherry's cousin Ralph Hawes called, he is prior AF, I told Sherry to tell him we will be graduating in a week since we are Navy! It shouldn't take long.LOL
