Loretta in a rare moment of rest at one of her favorite places--

The Fort Restaurant in Morrison, Colorado. Built by her dear friend, Sam Arnold, in 1962. 

It is an exact replica of Bent's Old Fort, a fur trading post on the Santa Fe Trail in southern Colorado.

Don't leave Denver without a visit to The Fort!
