Keensburg Colorado Road Trip Pitstops


There is a lot of open road on our road trip to Colorado.  And, at the end of a dusty road we found a fun pit stop.


Poncho’s at Pastimes it’s called in the small town of Keensburg.


We drove in looking for a gas station…


and then we found Pastimes and the friendly woman who owns Pastimes behind the counter.


She was a little skittish at first, what with me pointing the camera at her, asking about family recipes and taking pictures of her ah-may-zing!!! strawberry shortcake cake.  A bunch of elderly locals at a near by table tried not to be distracted by my out-of-town-ness.


Truth is eventually after I stopped wielding my camera in her face she eventually agreed to share the recipe


for her delightful whipped deliciously piled with cream cake.


Except that I forgot her name and lost her contact information.  That was last summer.


But, I know where she is.  And, I’m hoping to stop back.  Cross your fingers that we’ll get the recipe to share with you!


There is nothing like a favorite pit stop on a road trip!
