2,5000 Miles Of Fun

We are back from our Colorado vacation and what a great time we had....now back to reality and laundry!!! We saw so many great sights along the way, beautiful blue sky, Fall starting to show it's colors and SNOW!!!!! Here's a sampling of our great trip.

Mesa Verde National Park........such an amazing place to visit and hike around
On our way to Independence Summit.....natures lesson in contrast. We were probably a week too early for the full show, but nonetheless, the colors were spectacular!
Oh don't even think about throwing that thing!!!!! BRRRRRRR it was cold, even these motorcycle riders were trying to get some shelter from the sleet and snow

So this is part one of our adventure. Either me or blogger are having trouble downloading pictures...most likely me. Think I am rusty after being gone for two weeks. Nice to be back home and now off to the blogs!!! Missed you people!!!!!!!!! See you later gators :-)!

Welcome back! I can't believe you ran across snow! I LOVE Mesa Verde -- we had it on our plan for this summer but we ran out of time -- I was soooo sad!

Welcome home Cheryl! Don't like the pics of the snow, it'll be here in the "Great White North" (aka Canada) all too soon!

Whow what a gorgeous pictures. I especially like the one with a kind of houses underneath a rock... And sunshine and snow together is always a strange combination.
