Devil's Head off Rampart Range Rd

Yep, we headed back up to Rampart Range. This time we went to Devil's Head about 30 miles North of Woodland Park.  The review I read said it was an "easy" trail.  Not sure we agreed with that but after a few stops to catch our breath we made it.  I even made it up and down the steps in the pictures, did I mention I have a problem with steps?  My hands were cramped by the time I made it down from gripping the rail.  But the view was sooo worth it.

Rampart range road

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We decided to explore Rampart Range Road today.  The Rubicon earned its name today after we took a wrong turn.  You know its bad when the Jeep GPS shows you in a blank field.

Garden of the Gods...beautiful day

A perfect Colorado day.  Warm, sunny, light wind.  Went and hiked around Garden of the Gods.  Here are some pics.

Baby Pictures

I have been reminded I have been remiss in posting pictures of the baby.  She is still averaging a half pound a day gain. Her eyes have stayed a light gray green color

Just catching up

Haven't checked in lately.  The camera is broken so no pics.  Things are going well.  Spring is moving into summer and the fields are covered in yellow daisies like flowers.  The antelope have had their babies an we can watch them out back.

Hubby traded the vette for a Harley, really pretty and it fits me...hmmmm.  He's my hero for getting Air Gas to do the right thing and getting us a fair price for our gas and correcting past mistakes with our account.  So now I can get back to doing more glass (hard to do much when they jump your price from $18-$48 overnight).

Saphira is growing like a weed and is now bigger than the schnauzers.

Hope your Summer is safe and happy.

The blue Dragon

Of course a picture of Saphira and some glass.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I took a glass class this week end with Suellen Fowler. She is a wonderful artist and teacher. Here is the top of a wine stopper I made with some things I learned in her class.

old video of tornado
One of the NCO's I worked with at McConnell AFB in the 90's found this. The video was shot from a dorm on base.  It turned into a F5 and killed 28 people off base.  It hit at 6:30 on a Friday night.   The damage was horrible and surreal.  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I2qf7Re0K8E     odd to watch it again.

Another year...

Another year has gone by

Well a lot has happened in the the last year, we've moved and started new jobs.  Still working on meeting new friends here and building a network up.

We are loving our new town.  The AF has moved me around a lot and this has to be one of my favorite places.  Hubby took me out for a birthday dinner at my favorite Italian restaurant.

We have been very blessed and are thankful everyday for where we are in our lives.

Almost forgot!  Hubby got two more truck loads of rocks/boulders!!  Guess what we will be doing this weekend? Well if it isn't snowing...LOL
