Five Days on Road: CO to CA (

Monday 5/15/2006

The first day of the trip started like any of our trips would start -- late.
was trying to ship a package to Denmark and Divyani was trying to
enroll for a class for the summer term. I remember driving Amy and
Chris to the post office in the morning and then dropping by Divyani's
place to check if she's ready. I grabbed two burritos from Taco Bell
for myself and for Divyani to get something to eat before leaving. I
drove two of us to the house of Rick and Claire, a middle aged couple
in Fort Collins who were nice enough to let us stay at their place
when we first moved there. Sean, Amy and Chris picked us up. This way I
got to leave my car there, safe and without worries.

the time we left, it was already 10:30 and we knew we had about 11-12
hours of driving if we wanted to make it to that Jacob Lake Inn we
made reservations for at the north rim of Grand Canyon. So we drove.
Well, I didn't have to drive much. Sean and Amy did most of the
driving. Weather was good and we could see the snowcapped mountains
from I-70 in Colorado. The very first day we found out Chris loves
fast food and that's how our lunch will be for most of our trips. We
stopped at Wendy's and I grabbed a spicy chicken sandwich, and we
drove some more. Once we got on the two-lane highway 67 to Grand
Canyon, it was really pretty. We pulled over to the side of the
highway at about 7 in the evening and had some bread, cheese, and eggs
that Amy had packed for lunch. There was a river nearby and we could
see mountains on both sides of the road and it was really beautiful.
at night wasn't much fun, but we eventually hit the Jacob Lake Inn at
around 11 at night and the keys were left at the checkout counter for
us. The cabin was pretty small. There were five of us. So Amy and
Divyani got the double bed. Chris and I crashed on the floor and Sean
slept in the car. I got up in the morning the next day only to find
out that Chris abandoned the room for the comforts of car as well...
snoring can make you feel really guilty sometimes :-).

@sunsweesh 6K is a long road trip. What major cities/landmarks were you able to hit? We ended up covering about 4000 miles on that trip back and forth.
