Went to Drost's Chocolates in Eckert today. It's an ice cream candy fudge shop and cash register museum. It's one of those small places in a small town you pass by. I always stop in places like this. It's what makes Colorado unique.

You just saw most of it. Actually, Eckert isn't a "town" per se. It has a post office and a few buildings, but it actually is part of Orchard City, which incorporates Eckert, Cory, and Austin, plus a large rural area within its town boundaries.

Drost's chocolates are very good. Of course, so is the corn liquor from the distillery in Cedaredge. As I like to say, think globally, but eat unhealthy foods and drink made locally.

I will when I go back to visit my sisters in Delta. I love these small forgotten towns that tourists zoom past on their way to the ski resort.

These are the towns I always stop at and want to learn more about.

Crane count last night was 4. Hopefully there will be more this week. If there is I'll drive over there and take photos. I am told it's quite a sight to see.
