Well, we wrapped up a 6 show - 7 night run here in the Denver/Boulder area. Last night we played in Nederland, which looked like it was stolen from the Alaskan panhandle. Scotland and I both felt that they way the city was laid out, the wooden achitecture, and dark color schemes made it seem very Alaskan, which we both enjoyed. It was very high up in the mountains at 8300 feet above see level. It wasn't too drastic of a jump from Denver, but I could tell it affected me a little bit.
We've got a few days off before our next scheduled show in Salt Lake City. We are trying to pick up a show in Rawlins on Tuesday, since we have that day off and will be driving thru there as it is. We had an excellent show there last fall. We would like to go back and reprise that event. The Rawlins patrons were very receptive to our wares, which is always nice and not always the case.
Tonight the band plans on taking in the new Indiana Jones movie...provided we can herd us all together on an off day. We generally like going our seperate ways on these rare occasions, which I think is natural. As much time as we spend together crammed like sardines in a van, it nice to garner a bit of personal space from time to time.
Hope you enjoyed the pictures from the Chautauqua trail and the Flat Irons. It was wildly beautiful. I'm really glad we had an opportunity to do some hiking. Everyone survived with the minimum of blisters, bruising, and/or falling.
That's it for now. If we hadn't just spent a week in the area, I would say that I can't wait to get back...but I think we are all ready to move on down the road. Until next time, take care!
