After basking in the cool and the gorgeous scenery of Norway, how nice to come back home and leave immediately for Colorado! How nice to be reminded that we have our own spectatular scenery in our country, that takes a back seat to none!
I had to go sans husband, but the daughters and their families were there, as well as my brother and sister in law, a nephew, and a great nephew. The grandchildren had a glorious time writing stories, hiking, horse back riding, taking in the attractions at the Purgatory Ski resort (the alpine slide, bungee jumping, rock wall climbing), and the highlight of our visit, white water rafting.
The picture above depicts the mountains to the East of my brother's house, with the sunset reflecting off the mountains and the clouds. Here are a few other pictures that capture some of our fun times:
|Locke, Dawson, Malcolm, Susan, Lia,|
Kathy--and the dog, Ace!
|Lia doing flips, high in the air, on|
the bungee jump!
Malcolm celebrated his 9th birthday while we were
in Colorado. Here, in his new frog cap, with Locke and
his birthday cookie-cake, made by me, decorated by
|Malcolm, Lia, Locke, Dawson, about|
to go white water rafting! (Locke making
a typical funny face, rather Vampire-like!)
|Malcolm jumps for joy after winning|
a game of Fish Eat Fish!

to coming down the Alpine Slide!
