The timing was perfect! Diane, a gal I met from SNB in Albuquerque, has been in Fraser, CO with her hubby, Troy, enjoying sabbatical activities such as knitting and skiing. Sounds like some work/research happened. ; )
No seriously, they both have fascinating work/schooling which I enjoyed learning about. Diane’s blog is linked on my list of blogs I watch.
Got a message from Diane sounding containing phrases such as:
“Too muddy up here, bad skiing, headed to Denver to see family, time for a hike?”
Bingo! Went for a hike last weekend in White Ranch, just one of the Open Space areas Jefferson County has. There are many.
L-R: Wiley, Troy, Diane, Vixen
Was a blue-bird day. Temps were warm. Foothill views pretty. Conversation stimulating. Watching the dogs enjoy the romp was entertaining. Wiley has a degenerative spine disorder that partially paralyzes his back legs. Let me tell you, that didn’t stop him from keeping up! Both are herding dogs. Vixen spotted a cow and you could read her mind:
“Oh boy! It’s big! It has four legs! I need to make it move!”
Was good to catch up with Diane and meet her family. Hoping to visit her and friends in NM this spring before I set off on my next travel adventure.
