Visiting a Postcard

We’re on vacation in Colorado.  We started our trip in Cuchara – about a 10 hour drive from home.  A VERY long day in the car.  We are borrowing a condo from some friends.  It is located on what used to be a ski resort.  When the resort shut down years ago they sold off the condos.  This one is right on the slopes and you look out the deck and see the ski runs and ski lifts that are all still in place.  The night sky is unbelievable.  My husband, the amateur astonomer, is having the time of his life.  He got up about 5 a.m. yesterday to watch Orion rise and a bat dive bombed his head!  My son was standing on the same deck the day before and a hummingbird flew right into his face. 

From Cuchara we drove to Ouray to visit friends who own the Christmas House B&B.  If you are looking for a great couple’s getaway, this is the place.  Ouray is situated in a steep valley surrounded by tall mountains covered in pine.  I tell them they live in a postcard.  They serve gourmet breakfast, too.  Today the guys are taking the jeep road to Lake City and the wives are driving the highway to meet them later.  The jeep would only fit four and the road is pretty scary in places, so we are taking the easy route. 

I’ve been meaning to blog daily on the trip and post pics of the beautiful scenery we are enjoying, but we didn’t pack the cable to download from the camera (duh!)   We all brought our individual laptops, though!  Good grief, we’re a bunch of yahoos.  So, this is the first chance I’ve had to post anything.  I’ll try to post a little on Twitter, too.  I’m hooked on it!  I am Locavore55. 

Have a great week everyone.  I’ll post some pics when I get home.

Keep it simple.
