Back to Creede and our camping with friends and seeing plays.
Still crawling in and out of our tent.
I have been climbing some peaks, no 14ers but the 13,000 and 12,500 peaks are enough and they get you plenty high for the panoramic beauty. There is nothing like sharing the glory with friends, using your body to climb, terrific conversation, and peaceful wonder at the top.
Hanging on from the violent wind on Ruby Saddle
Resting in the glory heading up to Belleview
Friends, good buddies, powerful women
Imagine!!! Lunch on top of a mountain. Views galore!
Bushwacking straight down! Thank goodness for poles!
And then a visit from our Darlene and her Cooper dog. What a pal from our Winter Park days! Dar and I spent three months together living in Cholula, Mexico and traveling all over Mexico and Guatemala in the early seventies. What tales and adventures!!!
Dar picking raspberries at Karen and Paul's garden.
And now, making a rhubarb cake and heading over to Paonia at a ranch of our Corpus friends. Mike is a trooper spending four days with eight of my high school pals, all from elementary days and one from preschool - a bit unusual to stay in such close bonds with high school friends, but so fun!
Life is pretty darn awesome!!
Mike may return, but in the meantime, here are some pictures.
