Bread and Circuses

We've been moving pretty quickly since we left Canada.

We cooked in the cold.

At Little Bighorn, we saw some dead soldiers with simple headstones.


At Rushmore, we saw some dead presidents with heads made out of stone.

Jefferson had a runny nose.



Lincoln was crying.



Maybe because of the Bad Lands nearby? (rimshot)

In Wall, we fell for the hype.
 

And at Mall of America we got taken for a ride.

But now in downtown Minneapolis, we're relaxing on rooftops.
 

And visiting good friends.

I spy...

I was looking for directions on Google Maps today when I realized that Google had just added "birds-eye" views for Fort Collins. So, of course, I went to see what our home looks like.

We hiked them both in under an hour (I said very short, right?) and were left wanting more. So, eastward we went on our way to  Pawnee Buttes . Along the way, we discovered the  Cedar Creek Wind Farm  and plenty of wide open space. After the Buttes, we looked at the map and discovered that we were only about 20 miles south of Nebraska.

Here we are at the aptly named Panorama Point.  While only 5,424 feet in elevation it did have some lovely, long, expansive views into the seemingly infinite plains around us. As far as either of us could remember, this is the first time we actually visited the highest
