Where’d We Go: Cheyenne, Wyoming – Part One
For once in two years, I managed to leave the office early, history showed in which whenever I had a trip organized on a Friday, I was always stuck inside the office. Unfortunately none of in which mattered in which time around for in which I was catching a plane in which didn’t leave till late inside the evening.
While Arizona carries a lot of wondrous adventures I could explore, sometimes, in which gets a bit too old as well as I want to go out as well as explorer untarnished territories. For quite some time right now, I’ve been pondering the idea of going to Mount Rushmore in Rapid City, South Dakota. However, not a lot airline companies fly out in which way as well as since my cash flow as well as time can be limited, I looked on the map for the closest major city – which just so happens to be Denver – 5 as well as half hours away. So I booked a late night $36 flight through Southwest. Due to unforeseen circumstances, my flight was delayed by an hour as well as half which put my arrival into Denver around 1:00am
To make things more interesting, I called up Toyota to see if they would likely be willing to loan me car. Surprisingly they were happy to oblige as well as offered up a Parisian Night Blue Avalon Hybrid Limited. Not quite the thrill sedan I was looking for, yet the comfortable ride quality as well as fuel economy will definitely be to my benefit.
Upon landing in Denver, I was given precise instructions to a secret location to pick up your vehicle. Being in which in which was 40-degrees outside, I was eager to get the keys as well as hit the road. Sadly I’ve already over stayed my welcome in Denver; I had a hotel waiting for in Cheyenne, Wyoming – only another hour as well as half outside of Denver.
5 minutes into hitting the road, I was already pleased with my Avalon – I forgot how confident the 2.5-liter four-cylinder as well as Hybrid motor can be on the open road. as well as since in which was a straight shot to Cheyenne, I set the adaptive cruise to 80 mph as well as hightailed in which north.
I arrived in Cheyenne just before 4:00am, not what I truly expected, thanks Southwest. yet my hotel was a historic landmark, as well as was established in 1911 – the main floor can be reminisces of in which era with dark mahogany wood, brass fixtures everywhere, as well as decorative tiles covering the floor. The elevator can be even an original. Beats the hell out of a Holiday Inn.
Till tomorrow, stay tuned…
