Boulder to Mountain Home

We left Boulder in late June for Seattle and drinking with friends

The other noteworthy event was we did another run, up at 9,000 feet in Rollinsville. Maureen set a personal best doing a 5-miler. I - fresh off doing a half-marathon the weekend before - did a 10-miler

I checked the weather that morning. Something like "low-50s" so I decided I'd wear long dark clothing with a black hat. Bad mistake. By the time the race started the sun was intense. By the end I was hoping there were paramedics. Here is a pic of "the agony of victory"

Here are some pics of the 750-mile drive to Mountain Home, ID

We loaded up The Grumpus:

We stopped near Longmont or maybe Fort Collins for the usual outstanding breakfast served by the good folks at The Waffle House:

Random shots the next 80-90 miles until the WY border:

The windy state of Wyoming:

A prairie dog colony at the rest stop:

More shots across Wyoming

We missed the "Welcome to Idaho" sign, but these sunsets were definitely Idaho:

Next will be the drive from Idaho across Oregon to Seattle
