The beautiful Rocky Mountains.
It’s now 2012. My parents moved west and lived in Oregon and Washington for many years. After my dad died in 2005 my mother decided to move back to Colorado. So I’ve been making trips to Colorado, at least two a year, since 2007. These aren’t sightseeing trips but trips to visit my mother in a nursing home. She’s 98 years old now! I’ve done a little sightseeing but only close by Castle Rock. The second mountain scene is Pikes Peak taken from the Wall Mart parking lot in Castle Rock! It’s a beautiful picture but you have to click on it to get the full benefit of the beauty.Picture 2 I took October 2011 from my brothers back patio in Castle Rock. That was quite a snowstorm for October! The snow didn’t last long, thank goodness!
pictures are in the Castlewood Canyon State Park where my niece, Lisa, is a ranger! Don’t ask me why…but she loves snakes! This is a bull snake she’s holding.
