Echo Lake Picnic

Last week we threw some sandwiches and drinks in a cooler and headed to the mountains. I really needed my mountains-fix. On the way down the mountain we stopped at my favorite place to explore near Mt. Evans. This river, with its many little waterfalls, is just off the main road on the Idaho Springs...

December Daily | Twenty-three, Snow and other things…

We finally got snow last week! And, as luck would have it, I went to my old office to work for the day...in the snow storm. It felt like going home to visit your crazy family after being away for a while. Familiar but different; and always entertaining. Rocco was so intent watching "Christmas in... Continue Reading →

Dear Autumn,

Dear Autumn, Have I told you lately that I love you?  It’s the crisp air, the colors of the leaves, the pumpkin patch, the color orange, layers and sweaters; and it’s finally being able to dig out my favorite pair(s) of boots in the back of the closet. It’s chili in the crock pot and... Continue Reading →

zapata falls / great sand dunes

Here are some pictures from our camping trip to the Great Sand Dunes, Colorado this past weekend. I took 141 photos so I am still sorting through them. This is Zapata Falls. It is a 1/2 mile hike up to the falls, then you must walk through the freezing cold creek to get the falls... Continue Reading →
