Final words

Two things I forgot to include in the Really Too Detailed trip descriptions:

Jason, to Liza sometime during the day, after she had developed the habit of mining for gold every evening before falling asleep:
"Get your finger out of your nose - you need to save something for bedtime."

Liza, admiring the lead pipe handrail that was bolted to the wall inside one of the cliff dwellings:
"Look, Mom! I see an Indian towel bar!"

So, was it a good trip? Would you do it again? Would you recommend it to your readers?

Yes, it was a good trip. If we had it to do over again, I think we'd split the hotel time between Denver and Colorado Springs, or maybe just stay in CS since there's so much to do within striking distance of there. There's a whole list of stuff that's northwest of Denver and southwest of Colorado Springs that was just too far to drive to with a 3-year-old. Maybe someday a few years from now we'll get back there to hit some of the older kid stuff.
