We spent the night before in Grand Junction at home so we had a
long day of driving ahead of us...just to get out of Colorado. To
many, the drive across the Continental Divide would be exciting,
but we've done it so many times that it is just mildly interesting.
One obstacle on the way to our destination. Over six hours just
to get from our house to the state line. Therefore, a highlight
(at least for Lynn) was to stop at one of her favorite knitting stores,
FiberSpace, in the small eastern plains town of Sterling. Yes, this
is exciting for Lynn, but not so much for me. However, I got to
play Staff Photographer as she wants to post about this (even I
admit) very nice store. After we left, we had an ultra-boring drive
across the remainder of Colorado and halfway across Nebraska to
the town of Kearney. And trust me...driving across Nebraska makes
the drive across the Colorado plains look like a trip to Disney World!
