338: Just in casePosted: August 27, 2011
It occurs to me that with all we have going on today, I might end up doing another flash post. I usually like to keep a post handy for those “just in case” days when I either don’t have the time, energy, or inclination to post. So I got up early today to do a “just in case” post. I will schedule it to post and, if I don’t find time to post live and in person later today, we can all visit Colorado Springs in 2010 and assume I met my commitment to get outdoors for the day which I will then tell you all about on Sunday. Or something.
Last year near this time, as you may or may not recall, M and I were in Colorado hiking, biking, and soaking up the beauty of the mountains. We spent a few days in Colorado Springs where we did some of the touristy things expected of us (because we had not been there before) such as taking the cog-railway up to Pikes Peak and visiting the Garden of the Gods. However, we did do a few things off the tourist track. One of those things was an early morning hike at Red Rock Canyon. (If interested, you can read the original post about it here.)
It was one of my favorite hikes on the trip, and I wish we’d had more time to spend there exploring.
There were plenty of wildflowers in bloom at the time. Naturally I took far too many pictures of them, pictures that have been languishing in the archives, wanting to come out and play.
I should probably look up the names of the wildflowers, but I’m challenged enough learning about Ohio wildflowers and then retaining that information. There are days when it seems like my memory is full and refuses to retain one more thing, no matter how small that thing may be.
The photos in this post are only from the first ten or so that I took that morning. That’s because this is a “just in case” post. It’s also because I have not, a whole year later, found time to sort through the 2,000+ photos I took during our two weeks in Colorado last year. I need to remedy that. Soon.
In case you are wondering what’s keeping me so busy today, it’s county fair time. Long-time visitors to Life in the Bogs might remember that taking our granddaughters to the county fair has become a yearly tradition. This year will be even more fun as both of our sons will be here along with their wives, and the grands.
Any bets on how soon the cow photos will start appearing here? 😉
In other news…
Today my husband and I are celebrating our 35th wedding anniversary.
Happy Anniversary, my love! 😀
