Something to Look at Sunday

Since it's been darn right chilly here in Houston (and since it's cold all the way down here, the rest of you must be absolutely FREEZING where you live), I thought it was fitting to share some photos from some of my trips to Colorado. We were going once a year for a while to visit family, but lately we've been spending too much money (*ahem, Italy, new carpet) to take a big road trip, so it's been a couple of years. Hubby even proposed to me on the ski slopes of Winter Park, so those mountains are special to me.

Hi, bunny!

On the slopes!

We took a one-hour dog sled ride. I was a bit skeptical at first, having dogs pull us, but they absolutely live for it. They LOVE it. I can't even explain it, it was incredible. The whole experience. And we got to see parts of the forest and mountain sky line that we wouldn't have been able to see otherwise. Like this:

The Great Continental Divide

  2. I LOVE the mountains. I LOVE to ski. I LOVE snowmobiling. But I haven't done any of that in a long time and it makes me ache when I see your pictures. *Deep Sigh*
