Both trips I ended up with a window seat, which I pretty pleased about. I'm like a 5 year old when I fly. Face pressed up against the window in awe of it all. I love to see the earth from up high. I love to wonder about the interesting landscape below.
|These trees where growing in rings-within-rings, and no evidence of human interaction. Curious...|
|Spotted crop fields. Or... crop circles?|
|You can barely make out the image on the wing of "Charlie the cougar". Frontier airlines names and decorates each of their planes with a different animal. :-). This was just leaving Denver.|
My last meal with the Parmenters. We ate at Firehouse Subs - a restaurant started by firefighters. So yummy! But James wouldn't cooperate for a picture with his aunt Heather.
Pre-lunch, Devon and James showed me the Museum of Nature and History. I love museums and this one did not disappoint.
|You can't tell, but I'm making a shivering pose.|
|Is he as big as a dinosaur? Um, not quite.|
|You guys, this right here is the oldest poop you'll likely ever see. (So I'm told). You're welcome.|
Anyway, had a super time. So glad I could spend time with the Parmenters - fancy breakfasts a la Ben, board/card games, hanging out - and I'm so glad I could visit a new part of the country I've never seen. Not to make anyone jealous or anything, but I have just set a new personal record. This is the new farthest east I've ever been. ;-P
