Hello all! WE MADE IT OVER THE ROCKIES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  We are SO happy, relieved, grateful, excited, exhausted, amazed…….. that we are done with mountains…. for a long, long, long, time! Nothin’ but flat in front of us now! It’s so weird- we haven’t seen so much flat- what a scenery change! It’s kind of a bitter sweet too- as the mountains were the most beautiful scenery of our ride. But our big, loving, and detail planning God took care of us because it’s not normal to be able to get over the Rockies like we did this time of year! We escaped snow storms by one day on almost every pass we crossed! We have so many stories and pictures to share with you. Thank you with big hugs for all the prayers for safety- God listens! We are now in Pueblo, Colorado and the horses are resting in a big and safe 35 acres pasture with unlimited feed to fatten up on. We plan to take at least a week long rest here to regroup, catch up on computer work, phone calls, interviews, gear repairs, etc. Thank you for waiting patiently for the next set of blogs. I will be typing furiously for the next day or two! Enjoy our stories from Durango to Pueblo over the next couple weeks (once I get them done). Also, thank you for all your words of encouragement on the blog comments, as well as the personal emails. We enjoyed reading them all. Much love to you all, and praise to God for beautifully orchestrating every detail and safely getting us across the Rockies. Just you wait for the stories!!! ……………………
