We woke up to a fresh elk footprint in the front yard, and headed out for Denver, during which drive we went from 7000 feet more or less to 12000+, a view that will be gorgeous in the autumn colors and is nothing to sneeze at now. Then we descended back to about 7000 and beyond and headed into some of the worst of the American metropolitan ambience, including 75 mph bumper to bumper traffic. For the first time, during all these many hours, I noticed that Bitsy has outy dimples when she smiles.
