Day two begins with WAFFLES!!! I love me some waffles. We get moving slowly, because we have loads of time. (Ha!)
We start out and get distracted by Bent’s Old Fort. Which. Is. Awesome.
It’s an old trading fort in southeast Colorado. It’s on the Santa Fe Trail (Mountain Route). There are a ton of artifacts, and it’s got a really great way of letting you see, touch, and experience the items.
They have a prairie schooner and a wagon. Can you imagine going west in that thing? With your whole family, and everything you own? I need to stop whining about having to sit in the front seat between my parents as a child.
First we have the doctor’s office and general store.
The wood shop – which the husband covets, and a bedroom.
But all in all it was pretty darn cool. This is the end of the long cut posts, though, because the snow caught up with us, the time got away from us, and the balance of the trip was going as fast as we can on Highway 50 to get home.
A fine trip, all around.
