There was a whole lot of converging going on at Breckenridge Ski Resort. I took several photos of my wild Colorado adventure as it emerged. As a rule, I avoid converging with other skiers, especially when the bottom of the run is congested. Black Friday Weekend shopping at the outlet centers became a divergent force which drew...

Get Ready Before It’s Too Late!
"Red sky at morning gives sailors first warning." This photo was taken today! A blustery Rocky Mountain wind pummeled our house all night and is still thrashing our trees causing their remaining leaves to tumble like autumnal rain. A change in the weather is coming. Meteorologists have been predicting this storm like salivating dogs staring... Continue Reading →
It Was A-Maizing!
My obsession with mazes began as a child. I remember trying to find my way through them on paper and having a difficult time. I've always been directionally challenged. When I discovered a great corn maze was located down the road from our house, my husband, Danny, and I had to go. They should call them,... Continue Reading →

Traveling North by Plane, Car, Boat, Bike, Foot, and Hooves

They couldn't take the vacation time. After an uneventful flight (Yeah!) from Denver to Detroit, we rented a car and drove up north... Continue Reading →
Roxy and Squirrel and the Contest
Our dog Roxy has a friend. Squirrel hangs out in our oak trees or on the roof and waits for her to come out into the yard. He chirps and chatters and makes a ruckus. He acts like this is HIS yard. Roxy knows better. A showdown occurs every day. I wouldn't mind except our petite... Continue Reading →
Going for Gold – Fall Photos
Lower Mohawk Lake at the foot of Quandary Peak. A peek at a peak. A light dusting at Breckenridge from Boreas Pass Road. Striking gold at every turn. Not quite the peak of the season, but putting on a good show. Shadows stretch across the road as days shorten. Colorado gold takes my breath away.... Continue Reading →
Storm Chasing During Boulder’s 100-Year Flood
Photo by Jessica Farris Drenched by torrential rain over a period of four days, creeks swelled into forceful rivers, dams burst and walls of water cascaded from the foothills all along the Front Range in Colorado. 18.44 inches of rain fell in South Boulder alone, but surrounding areas recorded 14 to 16 inches. Thousands have... Continue Reading →
Where in the World? Whoa! Last Stop, Wild Riders
We had one more country to explore during the last four days of our vacation. After dropping our luggage off on the 6th floor of the flat we rented (huff, puff), we went off on a big explore. We hit the ground running. As usual, we didn't return until the cows came home. This is... Continue Reading →
