Post card from Colorado

Hi Everyone,

I don’t really have a “blog” today.  My family and I just came home from a wild weekend trip to Colorado.  We hit the ground running trying to cram everything we could into 48 hours!

I must confess I LOVE Colorado Springs and all the little towns around the city, but, the main draw to me are the mountains…of course, right?  We didn’t get “into” the mountains on this trip but just seeing them is so magical.

I will say, in those 2 days we ate more than our share of fast foods and sweets!  But on the other hand, walking through the mile stretch of the Cave of the Winds and it’s 100 stairs was good exercise after sitting in a car for 6 hours!

The next morning we took an early jaunt to the Garden of the Gods.  By 9 a.m. the place was packed with nowhere to park.  We did find an out-of-the-way place and after all was said and done, we had walked almost 5 miles in just a few short hours!

Once again we jumped in the car and headed for Pueblo Colorado.  The Arkansas River runs through the town and it is beautiful with all the statues, fountains and landscaping.  After the mile walk around the river, we sat and rested in the shade taking in the peacefulness of the city.  Of course our day didn’t end there, we HAD to walk around the historic district and take in a few antique stores!!

When we finally made it back to the hotel, we ended the day with a swim and the hot tub.  Bed time came early because we had one more thing to do and that was to get up bright and early and hit the stream for some trout fishing!!!  I’m not a fishing type of person, so I did stay back and let my daughter and grandson go.  They had a great time standing knee-deep in a cool Colorado stream catching rainbow trout.

Needless to say, we all had a wonderful time, but the trip home was LONG as we all were tired!!

The point of this blog,  get out and enjoy life.  Instead of sitting on an exercise bike watching the pedometer or being on the floor counting reps, get out and walk, climb nature’s steps and find the beauty you are missing by being stuck in a room watching life go by.  How do you start?  Just put one foot in front of the other!

I want to thank you all for taking time to read my blogs and if you enjoy the topics please feel free to share.  Also if you have questions or have something you would like to talk about, please leave a comment!!

Have a great week!!

Laura
