Slush Puppy River

Today we had a lot of driving to do.  There was lots to look at but I went on my iPad a lot too.  It took 7 hours and we didn’t leave until late so we could go for a swim in the pool first.

On our way we saw a really red river and I said it looked like a slush puppy when you mix blue and red slush.  After a little while we saw the slush river (Hoback River) meet a normal one (Granite Creek) and the rivers were 2 different colours next to each other.  I got out of the car with Mummy to have a better look and to take some pictures.  The slush looked epic!

We saw three really long trains.  We couldn’t see the end or the start of 2 of them but we were going next to one and Mummy counted how many carriages there were.  She counted 191 carriages! I’ve never seen a train like that before.

We crossed into Colorado again and all took some funny pictures by the sign.  We are now in a hotel and even though Daddy did all the driving he has gone to get us a Chinese takeaway 🙂

We are now in Steamboat Springs. It’s late so we will explore tomorrow.  Mummy has just read the hotel information and it says there are a lot of bears around the hotel at the moment so we’ll keep our eyes open for them.

  1. Hi Martha, I went round to Jean’s last night, to show her your blog. She loved your stories and photos. She was very impressed that you recognised the Ground Squirrel and Daddy didn’t. Love Alison & Jean xx
