A Visit to Colorado in July

Roger's IEEE meeting was in Denver this year, so we took advantage of that to visit Kevin and Sarah in Colorado Springs. We finally got to go to the top of Pike's Peak. And we celebrated Kevin's 39th birthday while we were there. We also celebrated our 43rd wedding anniversary there it a dinner in a quite memorable place: the Buckhorn Exchange in Denver.
