A Boulder, Colorado Welcome

A Boulder, Colorado Welcome

We began our day with the first snowfall of the season on the hills above us in Breckenridge and it was spectacular! After checking out of our home on September 5, we spent time walking around Breck, and I donated a copy of my book It Is What It Is to the local library as I do in towns we stay in.

Colorado Rocky Mountain High

Our first visit to Colorado was last June to attend the wedding of our niece. Being outdoors types, we just had to come back and spend some serious time in this Rocky Mountain paradise. Remember our visit to the great state of Texas last spring for 5 weeks in 6 different locations, this time around you’ll be able to follow our escapades in Colorado for 6 weeks in 5 different locations: Steamboat Springs, Breckenridge, Boulder, Colorado Springs, and Pagosa Springs. Looks like a springy September!

Lighting Up the Sky in Canada

After spending time in Eastern Washington with family, on July 8 we ventured to the west side for a very busy 3 weeks. First off was to go to all the doctor/dentist appointments, labs, screenings, and follow ups one might have to do during the year. So next time you’re bemoaning all the doctor appointments, try doing them in 5 days.

A Change in Plans

A Change in Plans

We finally put a wrap on all the zigging and zagging in California this time around, and on June 21 we drove north to Lebanon, Oregon. You might remember we stopped here on the way down to the southwest when we left Washington in December. So basically, we’re back where we stayed our first night on the road. Our plans were to stay for 1-night then move on to eastern Oregon to stay for a week.

Our Final Zig and Zag in California

Our Final Zig and Zag in California

After leaving Lassen National Park, California on June 12, we zigged into McArthur-Burney Falls Memorial State Park to see the falls. What’s unique about this waterfall is that it is fed by underground springs which create a skirting effect around the 129-foot drop. We could have easily driven past the park if it wasn't for a suggestion from our family in Rohnert Park.

Still Zigzagging California

After a long day of tree hugging in Sequoia National Park, we zagged our way into Clovis to spend time with our friends the Russell’s who had been former neighbors. It was nice of them to make time for us as they were in the last days of packing up to move to Idaho. Our hotel was located in the heart of oldtown Clovis.
