Colorado

A couple of weeks ago, I spent a few days on top of a mountain in Colorado.  The winding dirt road up the mountain seemed endless... lol   but it really felt nice and cool up there.  :)

The view from the deck was beautiful and the air smelled so crisp and fresh....







I enjoyed watching clouds form below the mountain top... 




I could see for miles... 





It was a nice break from the Oklahoma heat.  Did my soul some good too.
 I probably should go more often!  :)

I have only been through Colorado once but I sure do remember how beautiful it was.

I can believe that was a really welcome relief from what you've been living with.

Hey that's pretty darned sceneic Jeanie. Must be kinda hard to have to go back home.

Hi Lisa! Hope you are having a nice weekend. :)
It is beautiful up there, I liked being high enough to see for miles. Guess I still like open spaces. :)
Thanks for stopping by!

Hi Mark! How's retirement going? I know you are probably working harder now than ever. :)
I enjoyed the wildlife up there... saw plenty of deer, fox and even a bear in the back yard off the deck.
They said mountain lions were in their driveway the week before.
Guess it's a pretty busy area. lol

Hope your weekend is going well!

Retirement's going good Jeanie. I fell so free, yet still kinda tied down just knowing that winter is coming and there is a house that needs to be built. I'm glad you got to see some different wildlife, it looks like a bit of a wildlife haven from the pictures. Beautiful spot. No moose though? I know you're just itching to see some moose, or maybe you already have, I don't know.

I'm glad to hear it's going good for you Mark! :)
I'm sure you are keeping pretty busy with your house too. Hope you get moved in before snow flies. :)
No moose on the mountain! I have yet to see one in the wild but I would love to someday!


Hope you're having a nice night Mark. :)

Looks peaceful Jeanie. I could go for a weekend there for sure. I suppose that is the flatlander version of going to the beach?

Have a good one,

Bill
