There are so many places west of the Mississippi River that neither me nor E have traveled to yet. Since moving to Southern California, we've been looking forward to having easier access to explore more of this side of the country. We've started creating a "travel bug" list of cities, states, and places we'd love to see and different things we'd love to do... like drive northward on the Pacific Coast Highway to Portland and Seattle, or even cruise up on the Coast Starlight train. Denver is another one of those cities we've been meaning to get to for years now and in just a few short days we'll finally get to cross it off the list. We'll be traveling up and over to Colorado to spend the Thanksgiving holiday with dear, old friends and Denver residents. We're excited to be kicking off the holiday season with them and explore their cool city. If you have any other West Coast travel recos, would love to hear!
