This has been a very busy summer, and I have been running back and forth all over here. I am sorry for all the posts I have missed, and also sorry for all of the posts I am going to miss in the next few weeks. I miss my Xanga friends.
Here is a quick update:
I visited the Royal Gorge with my father in law who was in town while my husband was not. Not knowing him well, I showed him all around CO because I didn't want him to be bored. I may have went too far, because he was exhausted when he left.
The following day, we hiked up to Boulder Falls. (If you can call it hiked, it was not very far from the road.)
Then we went to Nederland and I had fun telling him about the famous frozen dead guy and the coffin races. He didn't believe me, so we went to the coffee shop to verify my story.
Then I went back to WY. I spent time with my grandparents and visited the haunted old cemetery where my relatives are buried. I used to play there as a kid, it wasn't as spooky as an adult. Someday I will dedicate an entire post to that.
A miniature sculpture of the Devil's Tower made of stone by a grave, amazing work.
I next visited my childhood home, but didn't take pictures because a new family lives there and that would be creepy. Here is the road outside of our house though.
I returned to Boulder, picked up Corey from the airport, and now we are going back to camp and hike in the Bear Lodge until a week from Tuesday. It was a good alternative to backpacking the CO trail, no fires up there.
The time I was traveling, one daughter took a road trip to Portland and the other moved to Montana. My husband traveled from PA to AL to TN. It seems we were all scattered this summer.
I do miss Xanga, and it feels like I have been gone forever. What makes it worse is that I am not done running and know I will miss much more. At least I will have a lot to talk about when I get back!
I hope you are all loving your summer and will remember me when I finally return!
