|This must be the bluebird of happiness! We saw it on the way to dinner at the lodge in Mesa Verde,|
where we arrived a bit earlier this afternoon after a day's drive from Flagstaff via Monument Valley.
|The view out the window of the restaurant was spectacular --|
we could watch several bluebirds and other birds from our table.
And every dish was great, starting with this salad.
|We shared the mixed grill game dish: quail, elk tenderloin, and boar sausage on hot-pepper mashed potatoes.|
We had heard from Carol that there was a wonderful restaurant here: how true!
|The dessert tray: we chose cheesecake (left front).|
|On the way back to our room we saw the final glow of the sunset.|
