I Like Big Basin, I Cannot Lie

In addition to the beautiful flowers, we had a wonderful day of exploring. We ended up going to see Big Basin, Little Basin, and St. Jacob’s Well. These are waaay off of the beaten path. We took the road less traveled. The big basin…

Wildflowers

After a nice night at the house, we set off for our second day. We headed out into the Gypsum Hills. There were some lovely wildflowers. Baldwin’s Ironweed. Purple Coneflower Threadleaf Sundrop Purple Poppymallow And lots more… And even better, we came home to…

Getting Lost

We decided to have a weekend out with COVID precautions. Road trip off the beaten path, and staying at an Airbnb. It was lovely to get out of the house, and we came into contact with people four times total (potty stops).

Makerspace Tours

Yesterday we decided to go down to Fort Collins (I love Fort Collins) and hang around. We go through the Big Thompson Canyon, which is just majestic af.

Snowed In

We came out to have a quiet thanksgiving. We just beat the snow.
