Day 24: Amarillo - Durango & Cortez
So this morning at sunrise we were meant to be going on a hot air balloon ride then having a champaign breakkie afterwards....this got cancelled which sucked but considering our 5am wake up call got changed to 7:30am in usual contiki style we all got cheap piss and got drunk at the hotel.....good times were had, i am becoming an alcoholic!! (just joking.....kind of)
- group photo (another group photo in the snow with second contiki crew)
- Durango (stopped off got some lunch and the rugged snow mobile guys came and picked us up, drove us up the mountain and let us loose on the snow mobiles!! ohhh i cannot explain how much fun it was i could do it all day! heren is me being a wimp about it but once i was on i was getting air, doing tricks....was all over it! tahns nearly crashed us down a cliff, freaked herself out and refused to ride down hills after that....was probably the funniest part of the day!! i found it to be alot like a jet ski but way more fun!! not to mention the scenery we were having this fun in.....was just incredible how many people get to say they drove around the rocky mountains on a snow mobile.....breath taking!! oh and a chick ran her snow mobile off the hill and into a tree, she was fine but her wallet will be 800 bucks lighter....ouch!)
- got to our hotel and its freeezing in here we are still in boots and jackets and i seriously just want to jump into bed but we have dinner in a few minutes!! but then bed because t-dog and I are soo freaking knackered and we want to be tip top for the grand canyon tomorrow!
its a hard life.
