Arriving

Slowing down

semi-overcast 10 °C
View San Diego to Denver, April 2011 on darrenesl's travel map.

The flight and trip out of San Diego would turn out to be an uneventful flight from sunny and nearing 78 to a chilling welcome with the temperature in the 40's and finally making it up to the 50's. Of course with the new airport being where it is, located well east of town, coming in it was hard to tell if we were landing in Denver or Dallas. But, that aside, it certainly was nice to return to the Mile High City after 20+ years.

One thing of note that jumped out at Terri and I was the slower pace of things here as opposed to Southern California. Even on the freeways, cars were rarely surpassing 70 MPH. Maybe it was just the time of day, 3:00 p.m., but even the grocery store and Panera seemed fairly quiet at 4:30. Of course, that may all change once the weekend rolls around. Anyway, it will be an early day tomorrow and I will try and post some pictures from Thursday asap.
