Trippin’ Along

After wrapping up the unpublished contest for RWI, my hubby and I took off for Colorado for a few days of much needed R&R. it was really nice. Took our time getting there and coming back. Stayed in South Fork, a small town about an hours drive east of Wolf Creek Ski Resort. We had a full kitchen, dining room, etc. Didn’t have to eat out every night.

We did make day trips out from there. Where we stayed was at the base of Del Norte Peak and we hiked up it the day before we left. Well, guess I should clarify. We drove as far up as we could (13 miles worth), THEN did some hiking.

And only then until we got to the snow line. I just wasn’t in the mood to tromp through the mud and snow. But we got a couple of pictures of the area. Had some great views coming down.

One day we drove over to Lake City. Check out the view from their city park. Isn’t that gorgeous?

Went over the Continental Divide so had to get some pictures of the snow.

My hubby was running around in a t-shirt. LOL I’d post a picture, but he’s camera shy.

In the higher elevations the trees had already dropped their leaves. But in South Fork there was still plenty of color on the Cottonwoods and Aspen. It was getting cooler at night, but we missed the early snow they’d gotten a couple weeks earlier, as well as the cold and snow that hit 2 days after we left. You know, timing is everything. Hehe

However, as nice as it was, it was still great to get back home. As Dorothy says, “There’s no place like home.”

What better way to think of new story ideas than under a tall tree, birds chirping, gofers digging, dogs barking, and cats demanding to be in your lap? When I'm totally bored, I climb on my Harley and go for a ride. That'll blow the cobwebs out of your brain.
