Why you hire a professional
We're planning an overnight trip to Leadville, Colorado, the town at the highest elevation in the US (over 10,000 feet) and a town with a big mining history in the 19th century. Baby Doe? We're going Thursday.
We almost made the mistake of going a day earlier, when 2000 cyclists will be on the road on a mad journey around the Rockies with one night in Leadville. Can you imagine having to pass 2000 cyclists on a two lane highway?
The places where we can stay are limited because Molly's coming along, but I'm sure you'll agree the web site designer at the Alps motel could have found a more appealing picture than the one above.
Even better, though, is the copy on the pet policy page:
All pets must be registered. Guest concealing and not paying for their pets will be charged $ 200.00 Your pet may not use the parking lot as a toilet. We don't allow any of our guests to do that.
Well I'm glad to know there will be quality guests at the establishment that don't use the parking lot as a toilet!
