Lost for words...

It's not often that words fail me but today they did.

The weather has done it's best to dampen spirits, but a combination of dogged determination and the ignorance to ascend 13000ft up a mountain in t-shirt and jeans have rewarded me with the most incredible scenery I've ever seen.

From the plains of heading into Colorado, to the top of Pikes Peak (or as near as weather would allow); through the Garden of the Gods and into the beautiful backdrop of the New Mexico horizon, the imagery I've seen today has left me absolutely gobsmacked.

As an added bonus, we made up enough time to skip our intended stopping point tonight and we got to Santa Fe in time for an unexpected look around which was a real treat (despite my camera batteries dying on me).

I really ought to be posting loads of pictures to support this lot, but I also need to get on with enjoying the break. So in the meantime, I'll leave you with the little taster above and tomorrow we'll see what Arizona has to offer...

Scenery is nice but what are the women and beer like?

Seriously, it sounds like you are having a great time and you enjoy every minute of it.
That mad woman next door says hello!

Glad to read you're having fun and enjoying the scenery marra. I spent 2 weeks in the USA and found the people very friendly indeed :)

Oh well, in 3 weeks time myself and the lovely Lisa will be in Kefalonia and my mandolin is coming with us !

Have a fab time mate and upload the pics :)

Looks a bit like the New Forest. Have you seen any ponies?
