It's my last night in the Rocky Mountains as I hit the road again at dawn. I've been lax in my blog entries these past couple of weeks but not for lack of thoughts or activity. On the contrary, I've been a bit crazily busy wrapping up my volunteer days, keeping my freelance work going, spending time with some wonderful people, and enjoying the great outdoors.
The mountain tops have a dusting of snow now but we've continued to enjoy a gorgeous fall. Amidst a challenging work environment (changes are in the midst), I've had a few bike rides and even more than a few hikes along the trails to scenic water views. I've also eaten far too many calorie-packed meals at the continuous all-you-can-eat buffets so it's time to get back to grazing and pedaling as I continue to head East.
I hope you enjoy the highlights of my last 2 weeks! Next up is a quick run through Kansas and Missouri with Kentucky the next stop to write home about!
NOTE: To those of you who have been following for some time, the Austin City Limits performance I attended airs tonight & I'll be viewing it with hawk eyes. I also want to add a comment on the Grand Canyon. If you recall my rant on June 5th, re: "When will it stop?", you can say you heard it here first -- a possible valet service? Really?
