Colorado Road Trip in the Legacy

Last weekend my family attended a convention in Denver.  Living on the "Western Slope" (west side of the Rocky Mountains), this meant a scenic road trip across the state of Colorado to reach the "Front Range" (the more populated east side of the Rocky Mountains, where Denver is located).  Plus, we had the exciting opportunity to borrow a 2015 Subaru Legacy for our mini vacation.   Among other things, this meant a sunroof. Sunroof's are always a good time! I love traveling on I-70 for a Colorado road trip, and think it's one of the prettiest and most impressive stretches of  US interstate in the country.  In many places, it hugs the Colorado River.

But seriously, about ten years ago I purchased my first ever brand new vehicle... a 2004 Subaru Forester.  I still love it, it's been a perfect fit for me and my family's lifestyle.  It's getting a little worn around the edges though, and there's … [Read more...]
