What can I say? I love the southwest. Gorgeous scenery and regional (hot! Oh my goodness hot!) peppers on a breakfast burrito from a place that has burlap bags of coffee beans sitting on the floor when you walk in. Mmmmm.
Alas, most of the trees in Colorado have had a viscous wind recently blow all their leaves off.
This Wednesday will be the start of our first post-retirement road trip. I cannot tell you how many years I have been waiting to travel when leaves are turning in the fall.
This trip has a joyous destination. My baby is getting hitched in Pioneer Town next Saturday and we shall be there to celebrate with all!
After 2- 1/2 months at our old home/new garage in Fowler, CO, we decided it was time to get away. We are half-way through construction phase 2, and the contractor disappointed us, yet again. But THAT’s another chapter!
We set out west to Pueblo on the I-50 around noon.
There are canals, rivers, and streams here in southeast Colorado. This one is Huerfano Creek.
Although ostensibly looking for several different locales in Colorado Springs, the highlight of the day was finding Bear Creek Dog Park. With a creek running through it, it was nineteen acres of human and dog trails.
Gretchen, Stella, Clark, and Luis (not to mention Jim and myself) enjoyed our day away immensely!
