October 14- Friday
Stopped in Denver and met my Nephew's fiance Lauren at a restaurant in Arvada. They had a pretty good Angus, Swiss, and mushroom burger and very tasty fries. We split the tab and Lauren left a hefty tip. While waiting for her to get off work I explored the area near the restaurant and found where the library was located. It is a nice library with lots of tables for wireless internet. Hopefully I will get another chance to visit there after the snow flies.
On the way to Denver I made a side trip exploring the Pike National Forest. It was nice but I bet it gets very crowded in summer being this close to Denver. There must have been a big fire there last summer. Thousands of acres of forest are burned.
I met Lauren at the Archive room in Arvada for burgers before heading East towards Omaha

It has been a good trip abeit with a few difficulties along the way which is to be expected. The burger was good and it was nice seeing my Nephews fiance.
