We are on our way back to Nashville now. To get things started we drove 420 miles to get past Denver and avoid the holiday crowds at RV parks. The traffic heading west into the mountains was stop and go for miles. We had no problem with traffic as we were heading east. I-70 has some spectacular scenery but it’s a tough road to drive through the mountains at high speed in lots of traffic. There are two points that got us higher than 10,000 ft. The Loveland Pass is the continental divide at over 11,000 ft. The Eisenhower tunnel built in 1979 saves having to climb another 1,000 ft or so. Tomorrow we will take it easy and drive just 317 miles to Homer, KS.
