La Junta, CO to John Martin Reservoir State Park – Day 30
Jenn didn’t want to leave the Holiday Inn but we had to get back on the road to work off some of the food and booze we enjoyed for her birthday. (1196 miles)
Lucy’s Tacos is a great stop if you make it La Junta, CO. Thanks to Steve from Rocky Ford for the recommendation and the beer.
Ran into Jim Abbott walking from Tybee Island, GA to San Francisco an is raising money for and awareness of hunger. Check out his blog at walktofighthunger.blogspot.com
Eastern Colorado is quite a bit different than the Western half. Going to miss the mountains.
Jenn wouldn’t stop and put her thumb out for the requisite tourist photo
Tried to offer this guy a ride but he wanted no part of it.
When I suggested he get off the road so he didn’t get run over, he hissed and spit at me. Very rude!
Made it to the campground at John Martin Reservoir just before dark and just as Jenn started wiggin out. She doesn’t like to set up camp in the dark.
