California to New York Day 4
On Friday morning we left Estes Park and drove through Big Thompson River Canyon. We spotted a herd of big horn sheep and got some pictures, stopped off at Viestenz-Smith Mountain Park, visited the Dam Store, then popped by Group Publishing where we were able to see my buddy Scott Firestone. We then drove about 7 hours to Grand Island, Nebraska where we are spending the night at the home of Lori Frew Keslar - my first grade teacher - and her husband Barry. Lori's late husband Jim was my dad's best friend until his tragic death in 1995. It was awesome reminiscing about the times they shared together. It was also great to visit with two of her three sons - Brian and Nate - and their wives. Brian owns an inflatables rental company, so I went with him and Nate to tear down a job to earn our keep. lol!
