Started and Joplin and finished in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Then jumped up through the middle of the middle of the Rocky Mountains and then to Cheyenne, Wyomingand finially home to Reinbeck, Iowa. Had a blast with five other friends of ours and the two boys. Only disappointment was the Cadallic Ranch in Texas, wasn’t much to look at and was totally muddy around the cars. You couldn’t get close enough to paint or anything. Took a nice group picture though, so I guess it was worth the walk. Here are some pictures, I’ll post more when I get the camera, computer, phone and iPad to talk to each other. There should be about 3000 pictures in all. Oh, and when you folks get the chance, go to Palo Dura Canyon in Texas, and the Rockies in Colorado, they are majestic.
