Sometimes You Need A Break

Sometimes you just need a break!

Time to spend with your family

enjoying and doing things  together.

Things that you normally wouldn't do,

like visit Colorado.

I was hoping for cooler weather,

but it was still unseasonably warm in Colorado.
None the less, we had fun :

  1. Looking for the "Giant Blue Bear" statue

We found him standing outside of the

Denver Convention Center!

2. Taking a train ride at 9000 feet elevation

This is what we saw along the way:

 3.  A walk across the Royal Gorge Bridge

(yes I did say WALK!)

Don't look down because this is what you will see!

 4. A hike up to the Seven Falls

5. Another hike through the Garden of the Gods

 to find the Balancing Rock.

6. Enjoyed the simplicity of the surroundings.

It was a wonderful vacation

and I am slowly recovering from my break.

My creative juices are starting to flow again

and I hope to get caught up soon.

Until Next Time... Happy Quilting!
