I’m on vacation in Colorado visiting with family & friends. So far, it’s been really great. We arrived Saturday early early morning, and have since already had a great time. Yesterday, we went for a hike on Bobcat Ridge, where we had great vistas and also saw some wildlife, including some prairie dogs (who are ADORABLE). Here are some photos I wanted to share.

I especially enjoyed using the walking sticks, as they alleviated some of the pain I have been feeling (still) from my sprained ankle a while back. Also, they helped a lot going either up or downhill. Overall, we had a great hike. The weather was perfect, sunny with a cool breeze. Overall, the hike was about 3 hours – longer than I have hiked in some time. But other than my foot, I felt great.
It’s great to see my mother, who is visiting, as well as her partner, and some old family friends, Dan & Maggie.
Carol & I are having a great time so far. It’s a REAL vacation!
