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.
