Summer flowers

While Ian and I were traveling through Colorado this summer, we saw an incredible number of wildflowers- many more than on our previous trips.  I am no photographer, and only have a simple pocket sized point and shoot camera, but I think that the photos in the slide show below will give you an idea of just how beautiful summertime in the Colorado Rockies can be. Mouse over the slideshow for controls, and clicking on the show will take you to the album.

Summer adventures

 I've been thinking about the blog a bit lately, but have not really had a chance to post.  Currently I am in the midst of a 2.5 week camping vacation in the Colorado Rockies with my son Ian.  We have done some amazing things, and have had a wonderful time just hanging out together.  Pictures and a full report will follow in the next week or so when I am back in Tucson.

Thanks to my good friend and Tucsonan at heart, Cindy Sanchez who has shared her home, shower and washing machine with Ian and I for the past 36 hours...we head off first thing in the morning to meet some great friends south of Telluride for a final 4 days of camping at high elevation and then back to the Old Pueblo.
