642 // December 30, 2009 How many of you have made or have had a Flat Stanley visit before? This is actually our second, and we always have fun taking them up and down and around the Denver and the Rocky Mountain area. Because of all the snow and weather this season, he is wearing […]

621 // November 27, 2009 Happy Thanksgiving! It has been a very relaxing and yet eventful past few days. Hubbie and I have escaped the city as of earlier this week, and have enjoyed some fresh mountain air. Along with a couple of personal friends who joined us, we had a huge turkey feast on […]

600 // October 28, 2009 Rather, my hugely-pawed-bear-like puppy. If you didn’t hear, “The Big Snowstorm” was topic on all news channels here in Denver. Nonetheless, it wasn’t bitterly cold — just very heavy, wet snow. Staying away from driving the car anywhere, I’ve been working from home with Cubbie since Tuesday. He really lightens […]

563 // July 13, 2009 The final part of the hike leaves me to share a couple more photos, this time from the summit. (This is Dave signing the register at the top of the mountain) Our drinks of choice – guess who drank what 😉 Looking out onto the horizon. Just a pure sea […]


Huron Peak I

562 // July 12, 2009 To continue on the story of our hike, we started our Friday night camping out near the trailhead of Huron Peak. Dave found a camping spot by the Banker Mine (near 10,500ft). Early that next morning, we packed up and headed up. View of Huron Peak from below the summit. […]


561 // July 11, 2009 We hiked up and summited Huron Peak this morning. It was the best view I have ever seen in my life. More on our trip tomorrow – we’ve been dozing in and out of sleep since coming home… We both wanted to send out a congratulations to newlyweds Steve and […]


Mt. Quandary

It can be seen quite clearly from CO9 in between Hoosier Pass and Breckenridge, in addition from the top of Dercum Mountain in Keystone while skiing. In the typical early-to-mid summre Colorado weather that can’t make up […]
