fc»ih%* Tidbits Fttom Evelyn feat from a vacation • of a month in which she co^eHd interesting territory most of us woula Bke t<? duplicate. She, "says in part-i^ first ' rie.«Uriaftteft was 'D<?nvfer which I had missed on other trips to Colorado.!' She took the Gray Line Tours' to 'points df • interest, the first being a tour of the city. She had intended to take the tour of the Mt. Evan* road, highest in the United State but over 50 feet of snow had not- been cleared yet. She went tb Echo Lake Lodge where Sandra Shum- wny and Cheryl Vender Waal are employed but they were off duty the day MVss Quinby was there. Other places of interest were old mining towns; Central City,, with. . its famous, Teller House, full of beautiful old furniture the Old Opera Hduse; and another tour 1 took her tb the Denver Mountain Parks. This trip included Lookout Mountain .and a visit to Buffalo Bill's grave. She also went to Estes Park, going via Boulder, Big Thompson canyon and Loveland. The Rocky Mountain National Park Was snow blocked and closed. A visit to the museum of Natural History and the Capitol concluded her visit in Denver. » • * From there she went to Colorado Springs and to the Will Rogers Shrine of the Sun on Cheyenne Mountain. She was on the "world's most crooked road, a seven mile long road in only a one and a half mile square area, with 22 turns. The Pike's Peak auto road was being opened for the fourteenth time. • • • At Sante Fe, New Mexico, Miss Quinby had planned to stay at the LaFonda Hotel but no room could be had as the hotel was filled with a large number of movie personnel actors, technicians, etc. She 'went to what is claimed' to be the oldest church in the United States with the old- est bell, aftf! iVie oldest hotise also The lattef point was-qaestibft€c 5fe'<yfe;have been told the oldest JibSise. is in St. Augustine* Fla. .The {answer Miss QUindv gaiped was > thai the !

Kit Carson's grave was also visited as well as his home. The party ate at a cafe which had been a home and was built 175 years ago.. After being in Sante Fe with so much Spanish language, Spanish and Mexican , aftd Indian population it seemed indeed a "foreign, land", and lo^reacli Al» buquerdue seemed like getting back td the Uftitfed States. .There still were Indians »whd "'were busy selling their craft work, baskets, pottery,! bead Jwork and pictures. • ' • j k * En r9ute to Flagstaff she stopped at Holbrook for a side trip to the Painted Desert. Her stay at Phoenix, Ariz., was 18 hours— a plenty with the temperature at 112 degrees, t hot for tours that day. Nine days were spent at El PasofWith a cousin. The heat there ranged from 102 to 107 but the humidity being less than here makes , the temperature more bearable. El Paso has had only 1.2 incHiis of »-ain from January 1 to July 1. She went to Cnrlsbad Caverns, Ruidoso and Cloudcroft in the mountains and cool, and saw White Sands National monument. She also went to Juarez, Mex., with its interesting market* At San Antonio she toured the four old missions, Fort Sam Houston, Breckehridge Park, Me Nary art institute, museum and the Alamo. She also 1 saw "Around the World in 80 days" which I wish we could have here. The rest of the trip home was TITONKA INDIAN DAY TUESDAY, JULY 30 BIG via Dallas, Tulsa and Kansas City.
