It’s a good thing we had that cabin last night, the wind howled and threw dust everywhere as a cold front came through. The good news is that we woke up to temps in the 40′s. We drove around the park and then headed toward home.
We stopped in the museum and saw the CCC exhibit, here is their flag and a picture of the tent city in the canyon while the men worked.
We stopped in Dalhart for lunch and then stopped at the Colorado welcome center in Trinidad, just to say ‘Hi’ (and use the bathrooms.) We hit a snow storm in the Springs that continued all the way home. We ended up with almost 2 inches of snow, but none of it stuck to the road.
While we were driving Joel was on his ambulance ride lab. He spent all day at the center and went on 3 calls where he checked vitals of the patients while the EMT’s worked on them. One was a car wreck, I don’t know about the other 2. Just before he arrived at his lab the ambulance went on a call where someone died. I was worried about that, another student was on a call and was performing CPR on a victim when they died. People die every day, but to be on your first training call and have it happen can’t be good.
We made it home and got the car unloaded, laundry started, clothes put up and had dinner, it’s nice to be home.
