Sunday Morning Hikes

Colorado Blue Columbine - our state flower

Wayne and I usually hike together on Sunday mornings. Because of an unusually high snow pack last winter, Old Fall River Road didn't open until yesterday. It usually opens by July 4. Today we drove partway up this narrow, gravel, one-way road, hiked to a wild-flower filled meadow, then continued driving on Trail Ridge Road to Grand Lake for lunch. We got home just in time for a thunder storm with spectacular lightning and thunder.

Tomorrow I plan to tackle my sewing loft which needs a great deal of re-organization and cleaning. It's been easy for me to procrastinate doing this task but tomorrow is Day 1 of the Big Tidy.
