Fort Collins, Colorado

Not only is the atomic clock located there, but Colorado State University and great scenery call Fort Collins home. Here's a few pics...



 Some views of Horsetooth Reservoir looking down from a cliff. There are a couple of great campgrounds run by Larimer County located on the lake.

A nice shady area on the campus of Colorady State University.

Viewing the 2014 USA PRO CHALLENGE Vail Time Trial

Took the 2 hour drive west on I-70 to Vail to enjoy a wet 'n chilly Time Trial at the 4th iteration of this feisty young bike race. We prefer to watch the majority of the stages on the telly, but a time trial stage is ideal for live, in person viewing. You can really get a close up view of the riders and soak up some sport atmosphere up in the 'tains!

 Dillon Reservoir, looking south towards Breckenridge.

Fog on the ski slopes.

This is the closest thing you'll see to an alleyway in Vail. Beautiful trees and landscaping throughout the town.

 Now I finally understand how ROCK/PAPER/SCISSORS works!

 Setting up for the race.

Let the ridin' begin!

 Oh noes. Rain coming.


 The pavement was wet, then drier, then wet again as the time trial went on.



Oh lookie! I'm in 3 official fotos! Thazz me in the gray sweatshirt with the orange/white/blue hat. I enjoyed the view whilst SHE™ preferred to stay comfy inside.

 The police had a ball.

 The race leader, Tejay van Garderen. He had the fastest time trial time and eventually won the entire race.


 Putting everything away. NBCSN televised the 7 day race.

 The Aspen trees be watching me.

 Strange.

 Today's jersey winners.

 I'ma hungry for a burger for some reason.


 The stream runs thru all of Vail. Really nice, expensive condohs here.

 I may be an amateur photog, but I can shoot the bird with the best of 'em.

 Fleurs everywhere!

After the time trial, SHE™ and I had some Deutsch lebensmittel.
It's hard living in Colorady, but somebody has to do it!

Wandering Colorado

This time around RMNP.


 As we left TEH CONDOH, I had to get these shots of our fleur beds. The bees love 'em!







 Inside RMNP. Beautyful!

Gotta stay in this RV park in Estes Park.

Puttering Thru Northern Colorady

Took a 2 day putter between Denver and Steamboat Springs earlier this week. Drove I-70 and Hwy. 40 to and Hwy. 131 and I-70 fro. 

Overnighted at the Steamboat Grand Resort at the base of the ski slope. Nope, no snew, but lots of green and fleurs. 


Looking out the balcony at some aspen trees.
This was a comfy bed.
Comfy furniture and a fireplace.
Pulled poke, slaw, waterymelon for lunchie. Oh, and a mojito or 2.
Nice weather for the putter-about.
Feet up. Yup. Fireplace on. Yup.
No snew on the 'tain, but lots of grass 'n trees.
The road to somewhere.
Some nice fleurs will be out in a few days.

Along Hwy. 131 north of Avon.
Colorful weeds!
