Day Tripping – Part 1

About once a month, Larry and I take little day trips throughout our beautiful state.  We Just pack a few snacks and off we go to explore what’s around us.  Larry plans the trip out, but even then we are always up for quite a few twists and turns, and things don’t always go as Larry plans them.  Me, I prefer to just wing it, and go where the winds take me, or in this case, the roads.

We were day tripping through our beautiful Rocky Mountains again.  This time we went a more Southern route than we normally do.  Different mountains, and different sites, but equally as beautiful.  It was a beautiful day, with bright blue skies and plenty of warm sunshine.

The mountains in all their glory.

The flowers of the mountains.

 

 

Larry pulled over for me to take this shot, but he did not realize I could not get out of the car or I would have ended up floating down the river.  So I literally was hanging out of the car window to take this one.

The contrasts of these two just struck me – Now and then.

I hope you enjoyed our trek through some of our Southern mountains as mush as we did.

Stay safe and stay well Everyone.  ‘Til next time.

  1. Can’t wait to get back to my parents place in the mountains soon. They own in the Steamboat Spring area. Have you ventured out that way recently? They have some great little restaurants and ever better biking and hiking trails.
