Scenes from my Boulder

While the Divine Miss M’s best friend was still here, we let them take advantage of tubing down the creek.  They had a ball, and it definitely provided a few moments of humor.

It is surreal that we can do things like that at our leisure, without packing the car and driving a great distance first.  But what is more surreal is that I only have to drive about 30 minutes to see all of this.

Maybe my favorite pic that I've taken in the Rockies.

I can go visit this little one, as well as some of his friends, if they decide to come out and play.

And on certain days, if you go to the top of the mountain, you can walk right through the clouds.

One of my chosen tribe has a birthday today, and since she often tells me she now intends to vicariously live in the mountains, these are for you.  Happy Birthday, Laura!
