good morning denver | train 4
First light was a little confusing. It came slowly, and I thought I was waking again to a especially hard shake of the train car. Really, I woke only a few times, and had no trouble returning to sleep. The bed is made with only a light sheet and blanket, but comfortable regardless. And then at 7am sharp, the conductor announced that we were 20 minutes from Denver. It was as good a time as any to wake up, and I was surprised to find there was no wait for the shower down the hall. Tight quarters (everything is still mini—like an airplane bathroom), but plenty of hot water.
It's funny to be in Denver... I'm right next to Coors Field. Oh - here we are pulling out. Bye Denver! Hello Rockies!
