Rewind - Part 1

Before The Fire, I had an excellent adventure!  But lazy blogger that I am, I didn't write about it ere The Fire knocked all other thoughts right out of my head.  So I'm rewinding!

My adventure started with a beautiful drive to the mountains.  On the way, I passed through the quirky little town of Lyons, home of

cozy eateries
 
 
spectacular sandstone outcroppings
 
 
 
and general quirkiness.
 
On I drove,
 
 
up into the mountains.
 
The Rocky Mountains, to be exact.
 
At last I reached

the town of Estes Park.
 
If you saw the very scary movie "The Shining",
you might recognize an Estes Park landmark,

the Stanley Hotel.
 
What a setting.
 
At last I reached my destination,
the Wool Market!
 
To be continued...

That is a fabulous trip with the clean fresh air and skies(B-4 fire)..loved that hotel. We share the Shinig movie too...some was filmed here too, at our National Landmark hotel "Timberline", on Mount Hood.

Hoping things are getting back to peaceful Terry. Can't wait to see the rest of that rewind memory trip!

What beautiful pictures! What a gorgeous place; I've never been out West (aside from Las Vegas and Southern California). You're making me want to visit ;)

Terry ~~~ what beautiful country and look at those Rocky Mountains....we love the Rockies in Canada so I know we'd love yous too. Also, quirky towns are a real draw for us especially cafes and wool anything!

I'm waiting patiently for the next instalment!

What spectacular views, and the hotel reminds me of the time we visited the Broadmoor, high in the Rockies, and the most grand of grandeur.
Love those quirky towns, such whimsy.
I hope you had a wonderful time at the the Wool market :)

What fun pictures, Terry! That tree was so cool. The first time I saw "The Shining" I had no idea that in a short time my life would take a radical turn, and I'd be living in Colorado! And now I've lived here almost half my life! Are you buying wool to weave with? Can't wait to find out. If you were in Nova Scotia, I'd be guessing tartan for a kilt! Have a good one!
