After a great day in Tulsa, we hit the road again, en route to Colorado. However, between Oklahoma and Colorado… is Kansas. So I’ll sum Kansas up in the following photo.
Okie dokie. Well, that’s it for Kansas. Next stop: Colorado Springs! We stayed at Cheyenne Mountain State Park, which was absolutely beautiful. It was such a stark contrast to what we had become accustomed to, in that our view consisted of mountains on one side and a city overlook on the other. It’s a fairly new park, and I recommend it for any of you RVers out there. Every parking spot has a beautiful view, nice hookups and quick access to downtown Colorado Springs.
One of the great things about parking in Colorado Springs was that we were so close to Ben’s friend and fellow photographer George Lepp. We has stayed with George and his awesome wife Kathy in December, and it was so nice to be part of their world again. While we were spending time with them, Ben and George tackled a project that Ben had been wanting to try for a long time. He had a panoramic image from Bagan, Miranmar, that came out to be a 17.5-to-1 aspect ratio (In other words, friggin’ LONG), and he wanted to print it. Though it could have been printed 40 feet long (the length of the bus) they ended up printing it at about 20 feet long, which was still incredibly impressive.
More on Colorado Springs to come… with a little bit of Odd America….
