Last camping trip of the year...


We spent our final camping weekend with Moira and her girls at Mueller State Park in Divide, just west of Pike's Peak! It was an absolutely beautiful weekend - perfect weather and wonderful fall color! We decided to stay in the park to hike - giving our driver a much needed rest! The trails in the park are all moderate and are perfect for families. The payoff was the wonderful patches of bright yellow aspen trees, with hints of orange and red instead of 365 degree panoramic views, waterfalls, or natural lakes. It was a wonderful change not to be pushing ourselves up a mountainside but rather relaxing as we strolled the trails!

Today we cleaned up the trailer and packed it away for winter. It's always sad to put out the last fire and eat the last s'more of the season, but we are looking forward to our next season of adventures - dah, skiing of course!!! Loveland is making snow already and hopes to open in 12 days - with weather like today, they are dreaming big!!! But you never know what Colorado weather will bring tomorrow!!! Keystone and Breck plan to open in 43 days - now that's more realistic!

My knee is getting better - I've been going to the gym 3-4 times a week!! I'm going to the therapist this week and hope to hear everything is good! With the right work, I think I will be skiing by Thanksgiving!

12 days to Cancun!!!
