De and I are back home from almost 2 weeks in Colorado. We rented a house for a week in Salida, CO right on the Arkansas River. Very peaceful and cool tempertures. We visited the Royal Gorge, then on over to Colorado Springs area and went to the top of Pikes Peak on the cog railway, saw the Cliff Dwellings, and drove through Garden of the Gods. Of course, we stopped and Lee shopped at several quilt stores along the way.
Thanks to all my friends for the birthday wishes; it was wonderful to hear from all of you. Most of all, enormous thanks to my son, Tony, my daughter-in-law, Cindy, grandkids, Megan & Drew & future "Cousin," Robert. They spent the week out here - we laughed through boating, fishing, hiking, white water rafting on the Arkansas River and Malibu Rum. On my Birthday, we hiked up the back side of Pikes Peak to the Crags & then went to Bierwerks. It was great to sit in the sun, laugh and drink dark beer! It was my best birthday ever & I love them all so much for making it possible!
After a 1/2 day yesterday, (Nathan slepy past 1 PM), we will head north to Pikes Peak. Yesterday was at the Royal Gorge, a walk on a very windy, swaying, wood-lined bridge 1053' above the Arkansas River. Later on a cable car incline 1053' down to the shores of the Arkansas River. After being there some 30 years ago, it is kind of depressing how commercialized it has gotten!
Our great Colorado vacation started off great at Lori and Jay's beautiful home in Denver. the Denver Zoo,Pikes Peak, Manitou Springs caves, and the Royal Gorge have been great places to visit so far. Megan and Zach took the zip line 900 feet above the Arkansas river and Josh bungy jumped 1200 feet above the Canyon floor screaming like a little girl.
