Freedom Trail

Treated the five year old to some of our nation’s history while visiting my parents. It was just a small piece but its beginning to open up her little world. It’s probably¬† what I miss the most about the living on the East coast. The HISTORY!!!

Saturday Afternoon Drive

The San Luis Valley is filled with all kinds of natural beauty which makes driving around the valley so worth it. These shots were taken just outside of South Fork on our way back from Creede.

I grew up on the east coast and when it rained it rained everywhere. It wasn’t until I moved west that I actually experienced Isolated rain storms. It’s actually fun to see where in the valley the storms are happening.

Did I mention my wife has an eye for photography!!! She is also an artist she likes to paint and draw. We were driving home saw the rainbow with the barn and we both were thinking the exact same thing (I guess we have been married long enough to do that) we just had to stop and capture the moment.

Three Drowned Rats…

Before moving to Colorado last summer I spent my final weekend in Montana at Glacier National Park. My parents were in town to help drive the moving truck. We drove up to Glacier and hiked to Avalanche Lake in the rain. The guys made the trek while my mother and sister-in-law stayed dry in the van. Chickens!!!! Anyway the hike was fun despite the rain. The only negative about the whole experience was my camera died. I believe it drowned because of all the rain.

Three Drowned Rats at Avalanche Lake

This is the Avalanche Lake I saw. My brother was there a couple of weeks ago. Boy what a difference a little sun makes.

Voo Doo Doughnuts

While traveling in and around Portland, OR this past weekend we had the pleasure to experience Voo Doo Doughnut. My wife discovered this place via the Food Network. So, we just had to go. I have to tell it they were probably the best doughnuts I have ever had. We stood in line for about 30-40 minutes but they it was well worth the wait. It just happened to be National Doughnut day when we visited, so I’m sure that added to the masses. However, I’m told that the lines are pretty long no matter what day you visit. The shop has a good variety of doughnuts to choose from the classic to some really crazy ones.¬† They even have Vegan Doughnuts!!! So, if you are ever in the Portland area, Voo doo must be on your to do list.
