Greetings from Cortez, CO (near Mesa Verde). We pulled in here about 11:00 mountain time, I checked email and went to bed. We have not had internet service for several days (and most of the time our cell phones don't work. It is below zero (-2) for the first time since we left North Dakota. We plan to look briefly at Mesa Verde, then Arches National Park and drive to Silverthorne, CO to meet Jean and Greg (Karen's aunt and uncle) and go skiing tomorrow at Copper Mountain.
