I adore you. I trust that you and the children are alright. I'll be glad to get back to you.
Our train (a little fellow) is scooting north over the high Colorado plane. The snowy peaked mountains can be seen in the distance. We'll reach Colorado Springs soon, and then Denver probably about 1 (we're about 1 hour late). There is a coating of clouds in the sky, but the sun shines through, and it looks warm outside - I haven't been out, but I went to the diner an hour ago through an open vestibule, and I remember that it was not cold.
Yesterday I had my dinner of 3 rolls + cheese, and coffee that I got at a station. I had wheat cakes (not very good) for breakfast this morning. Very few people were in the diner on this little train.
I'm looking for Pike's Peak over to the West, but I think that I haven't found it yet - I don't remember just what it looks like.
Love to you and the children from
We're going by
Pike's Peak now. [bottom chunk torn out of paper]
