A Mexican breakfast then a hike through a park that apparently has mountain lions! Fort Collins followed via a series of twisty mountain roads.

Hiking off the Beers

A clear sunny day welcomed us in the morning so we decided to drive over to the beautiful Eldorado Canyon State Park.

Filled with rail yards, factories, scrap … Continue reading

Rambling in Elizabeth Colorado

Rambling in Elizabeth Colorado

A small sample of some of the bizarre art Denver airport welcomed us to Colorado. A demonic figure sits inside an article of luggage, or as I was informed by a woman at the info kiosk “its a gargoyle, not a demon”. A shuttle bus dropped us of at the chaotic car rental center and … Continue reading
