Yes, it was. It was beautiful. The key to this type of trip is there not being any snow in the air. The weather was perfect -- upper 50's/lower 60's during the day and upper 20's at night. Makes one a Weather Channel addict.

Yeah but... it will only slightly offset the two weeks we have to spend in the Dallas/Fort Worth area before the end of the year. I notice that last year we spent the first two weeks of December going from Denver to Salina KS, Wichita KS, Tulsa OK, Wichita Falls TX, Lubbock TX, Clovis NM, Amarillo TX and then back to Denver. That was fun... but Dallas

I think it is pretty hard to live in some boring flood prone, blizzard prone Midwestern City and criticize Dallas.It's likely where I would be if I were not where I am, considering taxes and cost of living etc.At least they have daytime even in winter.Ha

Oh, gee whiz! I didn't mean it. I take it all back.

Denver... flood prone? blizzard prone? Hmmmm. Must have missed all that, too.
