Winter’s Last Stand

2016-11-16T16:57:13-07:00May 10th, 2015|

If I look outside it’s hard to believe that the summer season will be in full sway in two short weeks.  Right now it looks like February.

If you live here, you’re used to this.  Spring is a mixed bag with sunny, dry weeks where everyone pulls out their favorite shorts, […]

Grand Junction Continued

2016-11-16T16:57:13-07:00April 20th, 2015|

I left the mesa and went back to Grand Junction on Saturday.  I had planned to stay until Friday so I went ahead and booked something inexpensive for a couple of nights.  I could explore one of the possible lodges for the future trip later in the week.

I was intrigued […]

The first picture is this morning on my deck and the second picture is last week in Grand Junction at the Colorado National Monument.  A wee bit of contrast.

We knew the weather […]

Penny and Michele left on Friday morning.  It was half and half for me.  Lonely and glad to be alone.  Understand?  Anyway, I had another night booked in my little cabin so I tried to relax and enjoy the day.  The […]

Grand Junction- the future?

2016-11-16T16:57:13-07:00April 15th, 2015|

Where to begin…

I left on Tuesday of last week with a friend and headed for Grand Junction.  Why GJ?  Normally I travel to Europe in the spring with David.  This year there were several complications.  One being Beau and two being the WTW bookings.  I decided to stay home, take […]

Winter is Back (at least for today)

2016-11-16T16:57:13-07:00April 3rd, 2015|

Winter returned late yesterday.  They had predicted a few inches, but that’s not what happened.

After several sunny springy days, Thursday was overcast.  It started sleeting in the early afternoon eventually changing to a sloppy wet snow that wasn’t sticking.  I took Beau for a walk in my big coat as […]

Happy new Trails

I can’t remember the last time David and I had a Saturday off together.  We didn’t know how to act.  I mean, someone is always having to work or guide or go do something.  But not today and what a […]

Spring has sprung- moving forward

The big 4-day sale was last week and once it was finished I felt like the winter season was coming to an end and spring was here- snow or no snow.  Store continued to be busy this week as we dribble the sale forward.  We always do this.  We put […]

Best Snowshoeing!!

2016-11-16T16:57:13-07:00March 4th, 2015|

I remember back at Christmas I went to a party with lots of folks from Allenspark.  Allensparkians are always colorful characters and I enjoyed the evening very much. But to my dismay I heard so many people talk of “going south” for the winter.   I understood the need for […]

More Snow!!

2015-02-25T16:06:42-07:00February 25th, 2015|

The picture is Beau yesterday on the Peaceful Valley Loop.  He was a little nervous crossing the “closed” bridge with all the holes and deep snow, but he overcame his fears and was a happy boy.   Remember- a tired aussie is a good aussie.

After two beautiful days and a […]
