Well, the trip is finished. 6 days staying at home near Boulder, CO and staying in Carbondale, CO, Cortex, CO, and then Santa Fe, NM for 2 nights.
Near the top of Pikes Peak. The road was closed due to snow. I think one of the goals I had for the Colorado part of the trip was to go up a bunch of roads closed due to snow even in May.
It is finally seriously snowing on the front range of Colorado, so my dad calls a bunch of people over from the fire department, and they light a bunch of stuff on fire:
I get one last chance to take pictures of burning stuff before I leave for Japan next Friday.
