I love Colorado! When God created the world, I truly believe he must have spent some extra time on those mountains. It's such a glorious place. I'll just bet that somewhere on the base of one of those majestic peaks God signed his name as the Artist.
My friend Charlotte (see photo right) and I try to get to Estes Park for a week or two every couple of years. We just love having picnics by Fall River, shopping in all the curiosity shops in downtown Estes, watching the elk munching grass in front of the downtown library, going to outdoor concerts, eating at the Dunraven Inn (great Italian food, and there are dollar bills lining the walls and ceilings--fascinating!), having tea at the grand old Stanley Hotel (where the movie The Shining was filmed), and just breathing in the marvelous mountain air. Ahhhhhhh.
Sadly, this is not our year to go. Guess I'll just have to look at the pictures. Last week I took a hiatus from our series of writing myths in order to commemorate Memorial Day. So now, back to it!
