Taylor and Tracy couldn't have been cuter or nicer. I am sorry we only had a few minutes to talk, and I also apologize if I was weird. It was our last night of the trip so we were experiencing the patented Disney exhaustion/craziness of trying to fit in everything we wanted.
It was so nice getting to meet up with you and Brian! And not weird at all (we're usually almost comatose by the last night of a packed vacation, so I'd say you were doing quite well!). Did you enjoy the Fantasmic! dessert party?

In Colorado, it actually often snows in October. In New York, however, we had about a centimeter of snow in 2011 at the end of October and everyone treated it like the apocalypse.

It was definitely bittersweet to leave CO. But our adventures in CA are certainly exciting too

The drive really was pretty, and we could appreciate the fact that the snow was on the mountains rather than the roads.

That's funny that you remember the commercial! At the time, people we hadn't seen since high school would comment randomly on Facebook saying they had recognized her. We were actually at Disney World on our Disneymoon while it was airing, and we hoped someone there would recognize her and give us some sort of special treatment. Alas...

WOW!! That's a fantastic grand ole' hotel. Beautiful! I was fascinated to read about the historic tie to the Teddy Bear. I had no idea that it was started in that hotel. Thanks for sharing that amazing fact.

I've got to say, after over a week of around 100 degrees each day here, the crisp 17 degrees and hot springs sounds heavenly!

Love the sound of the hot springs!

The TVC was very adorable ... so funny! I was a late comer to the whole Twilight franchise, so never picked a team! In fact I hadn't watched any of the movies until about 4 months ago, when I got sucked into a marathon! Anyway, still enjoyed the books!

I am a big reader, but tend to avoid "classics" or other worthy books ... I like to read something fun! I also enjoyed the Charlaine Harris - Sookie Stackhouse series, not the TV series, but the books were great.

Your pun would be less painful if the broken bone experience hadn't been so, well, painful!!

I didn't know about the teddy bear fact either until Tracy told me about it before we arrived. She wasn't too clear on the details either, so then we read the story on a plaque at the hotel.

Yuck, I hate too hot of weather possibly more than too cold. At least with cold you can always bundle. When it gets to be in the 100 degree range there's just nothing you can do to feel comfortable. Do you have a dry heat at least or is it humid too?

The hot springs were great! Very nice after a long day sitting in the car.

Glad you liked the commercial, and the Twilight books. Even this last time through, we still enjoyed the first book. Good light reading (or listening in this case). I'm often a big reader too, though sometimes I'll go through periods like right now where I can't get myself to sit down and read. But when I do read a lot, I tend to try to have one "worthy book" going at a time and also one fun read. I'll usually finish two or three fun books for every classic-type book, but I usually enjoy pretty much anything I pick up in the long run. Have never dived into the Sookie Stackhouse series mostly because when I start a series I can never stop till I've read them all, so I have to be ready for a big commitment.

Sorry you didn't get much sleep. Those historic hotels are great and all that; but sometimes, they aren't the most comfortable places to rest.

Your drive looks l-o-n-g. I do love the Grand Circle; and I suspect you're driving just north of that area?

Yay all caught up now!

Wow that hayride sounds amazing! I can't believe how hilariously lame it was! That actually made me spit out my tea!

That snow looks so beautiful!

Awhh leaving Stupey

That is so awesome that Tracy is in that commercial!! Haha now I want to know that story too

Roadtripping photos are the absolute best!! That scenery is just so stunning!

That is a VERY traumatic go karting story!!

Really enjoying your trip so far!
