I have always enjoyed sunsets, but there is just something about living in Colorado that has made the sunsets just spectacular.
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!!!
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.
This is the Avalanche Lake I saw. My brother was there a couple of weeks ago. Boy what a difference a little sun makes.
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.
