My leg is still in a splint, so my participation in things is limited, so I'll show you a little of what I have been able to do, and some of what I've missed.
|There are 30+ RVs parked in a lot behind the park 'n ride for the bus stop. The bus service is good here, and this makes it very convenient for many of our activities.|
|About 2 blocks away is where we have been congregating in the late afternoons for happy hour. Besides the $1 drinks, they have great food.|
|Our group sort of takes over the place, but we sure have lots of fun.|
One day the group visited Maroon Bells, said to be one of the most photographed mountains in Colorado.
|The Maroon Bells without us cluttering up the scenery.|
|Yellow-bellied marmots are quite common in the area, and this young one even posed for me.|
|On the bus ride back we have the "hear no evil, speak no evil and see no evil".|
Now for some of what I didn't get to do, kayaking down the Roaring Fork River.
|There were about 24 kayaks that started, but 2 flipped over immediately, and one of those decided not to kayak on this particular day.|
|Out of the 20+ who started only 6 made it down the entire trip without ending up like this. And some ended up like this several times.|
|The group who kayaked the entire 6 miles. |
Later in the evening was a concert at the base of Snowmass Mountain.
|Firefall was the band. Originally from the Boulder area back in the 1970s, their biggest hit was "You are the Woman". It was too bad it got rained out and had to end early, it was a great concert.|
My next blog will be on Marble and the Crystal Mill.
