Widget Goes West

Here are some pictures from my trip to Boulder Colorado...  Boy what a trip!

I figure I've marked in more than half of the lower 48 US states!  ...and on both sides of the Continental Divide.  The "Porz" would be proud.



New Orleans


First stop, New Orleans!

I definitely recommend the Iberville Suites if you go to New Orleans.  It's just a block off Bourbon Street and it's attached to the Ritz-Carlton.  Their front-desk crew made check-in a breeze!

I must say that New Orleans had some new smells I've never bumped into before!


San Antonio


Next stop, San Antonio.

We went to the Alamo and enjoyed their Riverwalk.  I enjoyed the shade!




We stayed at the Fairmont where their concierge is a yellow-lab named Luke.  His gig even rivals mine!



Santa Fe, NM


After the 100 degree heat in Texas it was nice to get to Santa Fe.  The nights were cool enough to take advantage of the fireplace in the hotel room.




We spent a couple nights in Aspen (very nice!) and stopped for lunch (and some marking) in Vail on our way to Boulder.




The University of Colorado.  It sure is beautiful here!  Dad went to school here back in the days of the dinosaur.

...Here I am with "Ralphie", CU's mascot.  I don't think I want to meet the real thing...




Saint Louis


We stopped at the famous Arch in Saint Louis on our way to Chicago...

...They had nice grass.




Dad has an office in Chicago but he doesn't go there much...

...We got booted out of Millennium Park (no dogs) but I did some markin' in adjacent Grant Park.


We stayed in a nice hotel where I had a great view from the 18th floor.  I've never been that high before.  I especially liked the lights at night.  The city was just like a big nightlight...
