Down through Black Hawk - Casinos in the Mountains.


















Rode to Golden.

Rafters on the way to Golden















Stopped in to THE BUFFALO ROSE PATIO where we enjoyed fresh, cold Coors, Ice Water, and the soothing acoustic guitar sounds of Dave Frisk.
















Rained on us between Golden and Idaho Springs, but by the time we got to Frisco, CO and our favorite restaurant in Colorado, THE LOST CAJUN, we were dry! Fried Catfish, Seafood Gumbo, Crawfish Etouffe, Abita Beer, Southern style Iced Tea. Oooweee! Dat's what I'm talkin' a---bout!













Glass Blowers in Frisco at Gatherhouse Glass Blowing









Started raining  again in Frisco. Had a little layover there. Took I-70 to the Leadville exit then headed south to Leadville, CO
Bought beef jerky and salmon jerky on the way to Leadville, CO

Great Living at 10,000 feet! Nice little mountain town.



 



Left Leadville and rode to Buena Vista where we spent the night in a tiny motor inn. Most hotels were full!

260 miles today. Thank you, Lord for Safe Travels! Visit tomorrow for Day 3!





 


If you've been to any of these places, tell us when and your most favorite memory!

Readers, thanks for visiting Lagniappe.
I pray that you find "a little something extra" in each of your days.
