Subject: RE: A fine time was had at Bent's Old Fort
Well there is an evening program on Saturday 7-9. "Candelight tours - Las Posadas - period refreshments and music" so says the brochure. The music, um, that would be me. As I said before EJ, it's a 3-1/2 hour drive. I don't know if I would go that far for a two hour tour of the place but that's up to you. As for lodging. On Friday night I'll be staying at the Best Western Bent Fort hotel in Las Animas a bit further East on Hwy. 50. There is also a Best Western in LaJunta and another Hotel that escapes me.

I just looked at the Yahoo Yellowpages for LaJunta and there's a boatload of hotels. I was thinking of the Westerner Motel. I've also stayed at the Stagecoach and the Mid-town. They are more on your way than continuing on to LasAnimas and they are considerably cheaper. Something I will remember next time. Also, after the program ends on Saturday I am going directly to Aguilar for a late night music session so I won't be sticking around town I'm sorry to say. Well, that's about everything and more than you need to know I suppose.
