Oleo Ranch 2011 - Day 1

Day 1 - Driving to Colorado

We left DFW around 10 am with the car topper (with the broken string) loaded and the obligatory family photo snapped by a neighbor. If we don't have it - we don't need it - although we did forget our Scrabble and Quiddler games at home!
My friend, Nicole, called me about 5 hours into the trip and told me that the Nursing School exam results were posted - lowest score accepted was a 74 - so with an 87 - I am officially accepted to nursing school (Nicole is in too!)!
The hills going over Raton pass were scorched from the recent wildfires and the sunset outside of Trinidad was beautiful - there were numerous mammatus clouds (my favourite kind) hanging around from the recent thunderstorms and the light through the clouds and around the mountains was spectacular this year.
We stayed the night in Alamosa (got in around 11:30pm). Both kids were asleep when we got there but Little Man woke up when we took him out of the car and was so excited to be there that it took a little while to get him back to sleep :)
