After our whirlwind trip passing through five national parks in four days we reached Avon, Colorado where we were staying in a vacation timeshare with good friends Mike and Barb. Mary knew Mike when they were both in primary school although I did't meet him until 7th grade. We made Barb's acquaintence a bit later, formed a solid friendship and thoroughly enjoy spending vacation time with the two of them.
Staying in one place for the next six days let us unpack our bags and downshift to a more relaxed pace. We still made day trips from Avon, some near and some far. Mike and I took turns driving for these excursions.
We thouroghly enjoyed sharing the adventure with friends!
