Days 3 – 5 Colorado

No, I’m no longer there. I’ve been home for a few days now but I didn’t have the chance to tell you about the rest of my trip.

Colorado is a lovely state with unexpected works of art on corners or park benches.

 

It’s also a pet-friendly state, and it seems almost everyone has a dog. In fact, when you walk through various towns, local shops have filled water bowls outside their doors, and each corner has “doggy” bags and trash cans.

Unfortunately for me, the only animals I saw while there were… well… dogs. 🙁 Now, I love dogs, don’t get me wrong, but I wanted to see deer, elk or big-horned sheep. However, the closest I got to any of those was while at the Museum.

It’s okay, actually, because I will be going back. I have family there, after all. And so, my chances of seeing Elk and such will increase with each visit. Of course, so will my chance of seeing a coyote, moutain lion or rattle snake.

Well, wild animals in their natural habitat or not, the land is stunning, the views magnificent and the weather glorious.

 

Still, there’s no place like home, as they say, and after arriving at the airport at 9:15AM for an 11:15AM flight that didn’t take off until 3:34PM, we were more than happy to see the clear Colorado sky fade to darkness as New York City lights came on below us.

  • You really have an eye for pictures. Always love the ones you share. 🙂

  • Linda,
    It felt good to be home and in my own bed… for the first few nights. Then I started to miss being in Colorado. In a way, with my family all the way ‘out there’ now that I’m ‘home’, I’m homesick. :-/

    Marly,
    Thank you! I’m glad you’re enjoying the photos. They’re actually quite easy to take in such a beautiful state as Colorado, basically, the scenery comes to you. Point and shoot. 😉

    Laura,
    My secret dream was to be a landscape photographer who made enough money to travel the world. I’m so happy to know the photos I do take are enjoyed.

  • Welcome home, Debbie. Glad you had a such a nice trip. I love the statues of the kids and the scenery is gorgeous. Maybe it’s time for another trip to Colorado. It has been a while.

  • Lyndi,
    Go! It’s so beautiful there – and now is the time to go. Try to get to Estes Park is you go this month. This is when the Elk come down from the mountains and stroll through the town, blocking traffic, call for a mate, fight for territory, etc. I wish I’d been able to see that but we ran out of time. Hopefully, as I travel back and forth, I’ll sneak a peek and watch this up close. How cool would that be?
