Start the Engine

It has been ages since I posted.  What's been happening?    Life, and lots of it...the good kind. 

In July we took an epic (for us) vacation/business trip to a state I've been wanting to visit for a long time--Colorado.  We planned the trip around the 2012 Quilt Colorado show, so we packed up our SUV and trailer and headed out with vendor booth items in tow.

Great show, then a trip through the Rockies to the "Western Slope" to see friends; down to New Mexico to visit our son Darrell during his Birthday week and then we headed home with one stop to see my friend Dorothy.

St. Louis--gateway to the west

On the Western Slope of Colorado
This was my first time seeing the Colorado River.

 Neav Vail, CO
 Old west town
I believe this was near Estes Park

A huge natural ampitheater; I believe this was in northern New Mexico

 Darrell had moved to New Mexico just weeks before this photo, and he had just come from an interview for the IT job he now has!

Great trip!
