      As expected, it was a warm morning in July, and very clear. From Minnesota to Sydney, NE overnight, we got up this morning early, intent on finding our 2nd highpoint. This stop was a slight detour on our way to Allenspark, CO. Just follow the directions carefully in the ‘Highpoint Adventures’ book, and you’ll find it. The last mile or so was very deeply rutted, so we were glad we had a Tahoe with some clearance. Met four guys from Ohio there at the h.p. – they were over 30 highpoints, and were headed for more out west. Sara, Matthew, Kelly and I all signed in, and just as we were about to leave, the buffalo herd stampeded by. Very impressive. We headed south a mile, then west for several miles, all on gravel roads, just into northern Colorado. We were pulling a small trailer, and a rock bounced off the front of the trailer, and back into the back window of the Tahoe. It shattered, but stayed in place. A good duct tape job in Longmont later that afternoon saved it for a couple of days until we could get it replaced. So watch out for rocks if you use the Colorado ‘highways’ when you leave! If you are into state tri-points, it’s only 10-15 minutes away as well.
