Blog for the day (Tuesday, 3 July 2012):
Not so early start today from the hotel, lovely! Not much really happened today thought. We passed two prisons today, again, I didn't pop in but I'm sure to sooner or later lol. There are a few sunflowers growing by the side of the roads and some of those lovely purple flowers too. The scenery has changed more again, more hills and cowboy like. I went into one store and they still allow smoking in them. I guess there is no one to stop them. Not much else happened today, very quiet. Tonight we are being put up by two young people with a house in Pueblo. Lovely place, great hosts, amazing shower, clean, wifi, Westerns on TV, watching Butch Cassidy and the sundance kid. Some of it filmed here in Colorado. I think a bit of Once upon a time in the west, will be next :)
