It’s been a long road getting here, but we’re finally settling in.
The almighty internet says that the distance between Stuttgart and our new home in the mountains is 5,096 miles. If only Delta and our plans made it so easy.
I don’t have numbers on Colette’s travels through Minnesota, but I did the nerd math STR-AMS-ATL-TPA, then driving Tampa-Houston-Denver, then the drive up here into the mountains – 7,263 miles. No wonder we needed some downtime to catch our breath.
After a few days in an extended stay hotel waiting for evacuations to lift from the Cameron Peak fire, and we were able to hightail it out of the city and get away from the germ-ridden COVID carriers.
Now we get to enjoy the mountains, the deer, and the sheer quiet as we settle in and hibernate for the winter.
We had a couple inches of snow yesterday, but only a dusting remains as the Colorado sun got us up into the high 20s today. You can bet that our updates for the next few months will be snow sports and nature, not much world travelling happening when we’re snowed in!
The retreat has a pretty cool weather site that shows what’s happening here, and even better – 2 live webcams that do daily timelapses – pretty sweet!
