"Keep on Walking"

That's the Song for this week's meme
over at Song-ography.

We have been doing lots on lots of walking!
When we are not hiking around the park here, we are out exploring nearby cities.

We took a little ride over to Ft. Collins, CO.
And here are just a few photos of this quaint little city.

Lots of cute little cafes with outside seating.

No, we weren't riding.  We were walking but there were plenty 
of folks here who do enjoy riding.

They had painted up pianos located here and there around the city.
It would have been cool to see someone playing.

And of course a stop at the local saloon for a cold one.
The food wasn't half bad either. 

Ok this shot really isn't from Ft Collins.
Its from Santa Fe, NM..   I'm throwing it in because the word is texture over at
You have to admit there's a little bit of texture here.

And here are some beauties I added a texture to in photoshop. 
The humming birds love these flowers. 

I do hope you enjoyed this little tour of Ft Collins.
A fun place to stop if you are ever in Colorado.

Thanks so much for stopping by.
I really do appreciate all your kind comments.

Wasting Time

We traveled here to Colorado to be campground hosts.
But no campers to greet yet.

Due to extreme flood damage here in the park we are still waiting for
the park to open.  The repair work should begin on Monday.

So in the mean time we have this whole park to ourselves.
So we spend our days Hiking, Lots of hiking...

Exploring near by Cities.

And even doing some Volunteer clean up work.

I am still on the lookout for Fences.. 
 I found this chain link fence with some sort of vine intertwined.
That should do for Good Fences meme.. 

So you know the saying 
The Time you enjoy wasting.
Is not wasted time at all. 

I believe it's a great saying.  Don't you?
We are enjoying this journey we are on, and we are loving this wasted time.

Thanks so much for stopping by.

I do hope you enjoy your weekend!

Life in Estes Park

How is Spring treating you?
Are you enjoying all the beauty that Spring brings with it?
Such a wonderful time of year.

When we first arrived here in Estes Park, CO
 I thought maybe we had come in the wrong month.
Was it really May?

That's because we got a few feet of snow!!

What!!  It's May!!

 We were snowed in for two days.
But I must admit I LOVED every minute of it.
We had fun taking walks and playing in the snow.

It's all gone now and we were left with all the beauty of Colorado

Yep, I do believe I am going to enjoy our time here in Estes Park.
Even if Mother Nature played a little trick on us.

I have been on the lookout for fences for Theresa's meme.
I kinda like the way this one looks.  
If you follow me on Instagram you might have seen it already.

Thanks so much for stopping by my friends.
I really do appreciate all your kind comments.

Hello Friends

Once again I find myself having to apologize for not being around.  
I do miss it when I don't get around to visit all of you.  I Love to see what you are
all up to and what you have created.  Does that make me a busybody.. Heehee.
So I will be playing catch up once again.

You know its pretty sad when my husband blogs more than I do. Heehee...
We are here in Estes Park and what a Beautiful Place to spend the Summer.
But before I show you photos of Estes Park I wanted to show
 you some photos from our last stop in Colorado Springs.

Our Campsite was in Walking distance to Garden of the Gods.
We did Lots and Lots of hiking here.

My Husband got us a bit lost on this day of hiking.
You know we couldn't stop and ask for directions. 
One reason was we couldn't find anyone. 
But all was good.  We found our way.

We saw lots of Magpies here in Garden of the Gods.  
But they were a little camera shy.

This guy wasn't camera shy at all.. 
We had so much fun at the Zoo in Colorado Springs.
It brought back memories of going to the Zoo when I was a kid.

Just look at the tongue on this guy.. 

This little fella looks a little sad to me.  Wish I could give him a hug.

We fed the parakeets..  They seemed pretty hungry.
They started snacking on my shoes.
You had to be careful not to step on them..
Hey.  I didn't know I had a hole in my shoe..  
Time to buy some new Chucks. 

All the trees were in full bloom in this little town of Manitou Springs. 
A wonderful place to visit if you're ever in Colorado Springs. 

There you have it... a quick catch up of our time in Colorado springs.

Thanks so much friends for visiting me.
I do hope you are all doing well.
