Kansas to Colorado

Eating on the road with Celiac disease is quite a struggle. We usually stick to tested restaurants on the way to Colorado. Once we are there, the likelihood of finding gluten-free restaurants triples. It’s very easy to find GF dishes in most places. Colorado has been on the forefront of the healthy eating trend for many years. It’s another reason we both love to travel here.

Chicken salad which was so good and full of more than just iceburg lettuce.

When we finally got to our first stop, we found a highly-rated Tex-mex place that had no problems with substituting corn tortillas. I got beef and chicken enchiladas. Stephen swan dived into the burritos and nachos. If anybody is ever in Goodland, KS, check them out. Tequila’s is the name of this place. Great food, great service, and funky music to keep things lively.

On the way to Colorado the next morning, we made a quick stop at Spirit Hound Distillery. One can’t go camping without spirits to keep us warm. We tested a coffee liqueur, vodka, and their ‘shine. We left with the best coffee liqueur and cleanest-tasting vodka.

Next stop: Estes Park. The snow looks plentiful from here, so we are crossing our fingers that our campsite is not snow-covered.
