Wow. What an incredible last day of tour. We bid goodbye to Cheyenne and our gracious hosts on a brilliantly blue day, and arrived at the Denver Zoo about two hours later. From there, we were on our own for almost five hours to just wander and enjoy. I’ll post a few photos just to

We met the bus at 8 AM and had devotional and took care of some other business while en route to Littleton. We had time to spare, so we stopped at an outlet mall in New Castle to enrich their coffers. I think they were just waiting for us, as we were immediately greeted by

We awoke today happy after last night’s concert, sad to leave such wonderful hosts, but with just a bit of anticipation at the idea of possibly warmer weather. We drove through quite a bit of snow on the ground and bare trees as we traveled a mountain pass on our way to Pueblo. And what

Blue sky! The very need to start with that says it all. It would have been a good day anyway, after a stay with such fun, generous, gracious hosts—but the bright sky was most welcome, as we could finally see how beautiful the area is around Rifle.

Today began as do all tours—piles of luggage and tour paraphernalia on the sidewalk by the BYU Museum of Art early in the morning, and then the initial puzzle solving of loading the luggage and equipment under the bus in the right order. All in all, it went very smoothly and we were off and

The Bon Voyage Concert is over, and the choir is now finishing packing both for tour, and for many to leave Provo for the summer or post-graduation life. This entry will be very brief as the packing process is long, and morning will come early.
