0601 - The Trip Home
With a death ridge in place, and obligations on the home front, it was time to bid this chase goodbye.
However, we did stop at Beth's favorite prairie dog town (at a nature preserve S of Morrill on CR 8).
Anyone who has dealt with Prairie Dogs knows how alert and careful they are, so we could only get photos using the telephoto. But they sure were cute...
The rest of the day was spent FIGHTING HORRIBLE TRAFFIC ON I-25. Denver and Colorado Springs traffic was terrible! Next time I will avoid them.
We ended up about 11PM in Albuquerque at the downtown Super-8. As we unloaded the car, lightning, thunder, rain and wind greeted us! It was refreshing after a couple of days of sunburn waiting for failed initiation in the high plains!
