Loveland Pass, Colorado

This photo was taken after my Adjustment Of Status ( Green Card) interview in Denver, Colorado. We arrived in Denver as early as 7:00 am, since we started driving from Grand Junction at around 2 or 3 in the morning. The interview didn't take long and I got approved for my 2 year conditional permanent residency since my US Visa was K1 or commonly known as Fiancee Visa. So, after the interview we drove back home but that time hubby wanted me to see some place that I haven't been and so we drove through Loveland Pass. It was a very beautiful and interesting drive though a little bit scary because we were driving along the long road where you could see the cliff on each of the sides of the road.
Loveland Pass Info:
Loveland Pass, elevation 11,990 ft (3,655 m), is a high mountain pass in the Rocky Mountains of central Colorado in the United States. The pass is located on the Continental Divide in the Front Range west of Denver. U.S. Route 6 traverses the pass; the road is considered to be especially treacherous during the winter months.
The pass is named for William A.H. Loveland, a resident of Golden during the late 19th century who was president of the Colorado Central Railroad. The town of Loveland, which is not located near Loveland Pass, is also named after him.

It's one of the record breaker for me today because I drove on a highway where there were more traffic and wider road. Though I have been driving without hubby on my side since I take my youngest stepson to school every day during the week when the children are here with us.

Today, one of my stepsons (Josh) asked me if I could take him to work. So, since there is no other person for him to take him to work I said ok but within myself I was a bit nervous because I know I will be driving to a highway that I am not used to drive. I just thought to myself that I can do it and besides I really need to get used to driving more and more specially to a highway which has more and faster traffic and to be able to gain more confidence in driving. I made it safely to Josh's workplace. It wasn't that really bad driving on highway 6 & 50, my nervousness had gone away as I drove along the busy road.

After I dropped Josh off, I decided to go by Walmart and do some window shopping since I'm heading that way going back home. I felt good about myself because to me it's another accomplishment for me as I'm improving my driving skills. To reward myself, I bought some stuffs for me at Walmart.

Cinco de Mayo

cinco 1

Cinco de Mayo, the Spanish for "5th of May" is primarily a regional and not an obligatory federal holiday in Mexico. The holiday commemorates an initial victory of Mexican forces led by General Ignacio Zaragoza Seguín over French forces in the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862. The date is observed in the United States and other locations around the world as a celebration of Mexican heritage and pride.

A common misconception in the United States is that Cinco de Mayo is Mexico's Independence Day; Mexico's Independence Day is actually September 16, which is the most important national patriotic holiday in Mexico.

The origin of the observance of Cinco de Mayo in the United States, focus on that day first started in California in the 1860s in response to the resistance to French rule in Mexico. In Mexico the holiday of Cinco de Mayo is primarily a regional holiday, celebrated in the state of Puebla, Mexico. For the most part the celebrations combine food, music and dancing.

In the United States, Cinco de Mayo has taken on a significance beyond that in Mexico. The date is perhaps best recognized in the United States as a date to celebrate the culture and experiences of Americans of Mexican ancestry, much as St. Patrick's Day, Oktoberfest, and the Chinese New Year are used to celebrate those of Irish, German, and Chinese ancestry, respectively.
