Back from Colorado

Thanks to everyone who left comments while I was on blog-cation! We were traveling around Colorado, doing all kinds of cool things, including ...
... checking out the Butterfly Pavilion in the most humid room in all of Colorado ...

... climbing the snow pile (what? August?) ...


... reveling in the glory of the beautiful Colorado Rocky Mountains ...


... driving up Pikes Peak, which resembled a martian landscape, while listening to Major Tom ...


... (we of course brought the Chip Bag of Destiny to gauge the pressure change at 14,000 ft elev). 


No trip is complete without raiding a local bookstore (Leadville, CO, "Book Mine") ...


... and Singing Cowboys.


Worm Burner wanted me to leave him at this gas station, so he could get a free puppy (I declined).

Back to our regularly scheduled program tomorrow!

  2. Love the photos, and I know my kids would be telling me and my husband that we had to leave them alone - they love puppies!

  3. I love Colorado. Part of me still wants to live there. And did you know they have a fabulous writing conference in Pikes Peak? My daughter would have wanted to stay for the free puppy too :D

  7. Now, I have Colorado fever. Haven't been there since 1984. Time to go back.
