My Favorite Places in my Favorite Place (Part 1, Landscapes)

My favorite place is Rocky Mountain National Park and Estes Park. But what are my favorite places in the park? Let’s look at them…

Oh For Goodness Sakes

So I “sprained” my ankle last week. And it still hurt. So I go to the walk-in clinic, where they take some x-rays. Yep. Broke the *other* ankle. This one at least isn’t displaced.
