During September and October Susan and I embarked on a tour of several midwestern and western states, driving in our 2000 Toyota Siena van(215,000 miles before our trip)a total of 7,279 miles through 13 states. We were gone 33 days and spent the night in 21 different places. When we got home it dawned on us that we had been together virtually 24/7 for the entire trip with no major disagreements and without growing tired of each other. I think our marriage of 41 years will last.

Sunday September 25: Grand Lake CO

Sunday morning meant the end of Big Chill 2011 and saying goodbye to Grand Lake.  Before we leave, I’m posting just a few photos of our stay there.

The beautiful lakefront house that was home for four days

Giant bear rug hanging in the home.  Bear was killed by homeowner’s uncle on an Alaskan hunting trip featured in an early edition of Sports Illustrated.

To appreciate the size of the bear, just check out the head.
