Hello From Gunnison, CO

Saturday May 9, 2015  (First blog of this trip) Friday we left Evergreen and drove to Gunnison — approximately 160 miles.  We are staying at the Quality Inn:

.

We are here for  Thomas Jeute's (our grandson's) graduation from Western State Colorado University.  He graduated with a petroleum geology degree.  Words can not describe how proud we are of his accomplishments!  Here is a photo of the graduation ceremony setting:

At the field

The weather prediction for the ceremony was a bit iffy.  They chose to have the ceremony on the field (as opposed to indoors with limited seating).  The weather was OK at the 10:00 start, but at a bit before 11:00 it started to snow.  It spit off and on during the rest of the ceremony.  We had dressed for cold weather, so it was not too bad.

Almost all of the family is here except for grandson Josh (and his dad Dan) who is competing in a major swim meet.

Thomas has received  a paid internship contract with Antero Resources (link).  The paperwork suggests it will be a three month internship.  Antero is in downtown Denver and Thomas and friend Rob (also has internship with Antero) will be staying with us for that period.  We are very excited to have these great young men stay with us!

The men are going to cook breakfast for the mothers tomorrow and then we will head home.  It is predicted to snow quite a bit, but we brought the Durango, so we should be in good shape.

That is all for now.
