During my talk-through with the Verizon rep, we somehow managed to recover the pictures from yesterday’s train ride. There was a fundraiser for the local battered women’s shelter and it involved an afternoon/evening train ride through the mountains. I haven’t been on the train before as I see the views pretty regularly on my commute, … Continue reading
The first thing people ask about when I mention NOLA are beignets. Weird, right? These were at Café Beignet. While we did visit Café du Monde a couple of times, I actually preferred the beignets here. They were a bit lighter and fluffier but don’t get me wrong – beignets in any incarnation are delicious. … Continue reading

As I’ve said many times, I don’t mind having to drive an hour in any direction to run an errand because the views are stunning. These are photos I took on the drive. I … Continue reading
Part of skijoring is capturing rings on the course. And as crazy as this whole sport sounds, it actually LOOKS CRAZIER. Here’s the photoset.
This is a skijoring weekend in Leadville. If, like me, you were previously unaware of skijoring – here’s the skinny: They truck snow into town and create a track down main street. They build jumps out of the snow, on the track. Then some crazy fools strap on skis, tie themselves to a horse, and … Continue reading
I took these pics today on my way to Silverthorne. It’s Spouse’s favorite view on that particular drive, just inside Summit County. The first photo was in the early afternoon, the second on my way home. Click the photos for the full view.
