Today was drive day. I had no intentions of stopping to sight-see anywhere. Once I'd gotten into Denver, I knew it would be all-interstate all-day. But before that, it was a scenic drive between Gunnison and Denver... some fun, squirrely roads and a few really fantastic views.
But it has to end sometime, doesn't it? *sigh*
Outside of all the driving, there isn't much else to report for this day. I drove 15+ hours, mostly along I-80. Gunnison, Colorado to just short of the Iowa/Illinois border... and just over 1000 miles traveled for the day. I really hadn't intended on driving that long or that far, but there wasn't anything else I wanted to stop to do or see, and the lure of home was getting stronger. I typically get tired shortly after dark, but didn't. Instead, I drove until just after 11:30pm. At that point, I simply stopped at a rest area near the state line to sleep a bit.
Google maps said I had 2-1/2 hours till home. I'd finish it in the morning.
