Day 12: Olympians and caves but no zipline

I’m currently on a 5,000 mile road trip through 15 states with Cecily. The following is an excerpt from today’s post on our blog,

One of the difficulties in packing for a cross country road trip is that you’re going through so many different climates. DC has pretty average weather: it’s hot in the summer, cold in the winter, and somewhere nice in between during the fall and spring. October weather usually calls for a long sleeve shirt, maybe a light jacket. But in New Orleans, we had to deal with the kind of heat we only expect in August. Now that we’re in Colorado, the pendulum has swung the opposite direction. And Megan didn’t pack a coat.

Luckily the Chapmans have plenty of winter gear to loan out, because we spent a majority of the day outside. The highlight was definitely the Olympic Training Center. If Roswell was Megan’s happy place, this was Cecily’s. We got a tour of the whole complex, led by a gold medal winner and captain of the U.S. Paralympics swim team. It was pretty incredible to see.
