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!

Hugs~

Gosh does it feel weird to have the park to yourself like that? That was some flood damage for sure. Hope the weather is better now. I liked your fence shot, I love that type of vine. Sounds like you are having fun and doing some great work as well. Loved your Hummingbird shots.

I just saw a sign somewhere with that wasted time saying on it. So true. Lets hope that flooding brings lots of new life with it too besides the destruction. Enjoy!
