Hey--we're driving to Leadville (from Bennett) next Thursday to take the train ride. How are the leaves up there?

As for waht I did to my truck today--took it to the car wash, vacuumed it, then put some tire shine stuff on the new tires. Looks nice!

This was our camp site at Twin Lakes. Beautiful area out there. Went to Leadville and rode the train.

That was a few years ago but we loved it. Our golden retriever loved playing with her ball in the lake at the campground. Really hope to make it out there again someday.
