Colorado

Going Home

We camped in central Colorado last night and drove straight through to my parent's place outside Philadelphia. It was a brutal drive, made worse by a severe line of thunderstorms that we seemed to follow from Indiana all the way to Pennsylvania. After cleaning up, we drove home to New York City, and Mel was now on his way to becoming a New Yorker.
