Summer Meanderings – Part 4 “Flora”

20 Aug

I remember being on a tour of the rain forest in Australia and giggling like a schoolgirl at the way the guide pronounced and kept saying “flora and fauna”.  Since I’ve shared the “fauna” already, I thought I’d share a bit of the “flora” from my recent trip. Bored yet?

Summer Meanderings – Part 3 “Critters”

19 Aug

We saw lots of beautiful wildlife in Colorado.  I missed the moose but most of the rest of our gang saw him so I nabbed the moose pic off my mother.  A big highlight was hearing my mom excitedly yell, “Look, look, look!” as we were heading out to the airport just outside of Trout Lake.  We looked over to see a huge herd of elk running through the mountains on our left.  It was majestic!

My mom’s pup, Darby, was also very cooperative in playing dress-up with us. And try as I might, I could never get the perfect shot of the hummingbirds outside Molly’s kitchen window. 

Summer Meanderings – Part 2 “People”

18 Aug

It was great getting to catch up with both family and friends out in Colorado.  This doesn’t even begin to scratch the surface of all the photos that were taken during the visit but I thought I’d share some of my favorites.  There was lots of activity everywhere including whitewater rafting, paintball, frisbee, hiking, paddle boarding (not even sure it that’s what it’s called) and, one of my favorites is the expression on my parent’s and R’s faces as they headed down the gondola into Telluride.

Summer Meanderings – Part 1 “Views”

17 Aug

I had the good fortune of making it out to Colorado recently to celebrate my parents’ 50th Wedding Anniversary with them. We headed down to the beautiful spot where Molly lives in the San Juan mountains.  I thought I’d share a few of my favorite pics from the visit over the next couple of days.

 

Today, I’m focusing on the views immediately outside Molly’s windows as well as the view looking back toward her house with the mountains reflecting. I also loved the little run-down cabin next door.
