Home Again

No blog neglect this time! We just returned from a 12 day trip to the Southwestern US. We had a marvelous time and did more than you can imagine. I'll share some of our adventures (and a few of the gazillion pictures) over the next few days. Here are a few to whet your appetite:

Boulder Creek (Boulder Canyon) Colorado

Poppies in Taos, New Mexico

A doorway in Santa Fe, New Mexico

Petroglyphs (circa 700 AD) in Mesa Verde, Colorado

I can't say it was all pleasure and no pain ~ our very last adventure was mountain biking in Moab, Utah. We were having a great time, until I came down a hill too fast and hit some rocks. I fell and gouged my left palm on something (I think probably part of the bike) and wound up bringing home 11 stitches. Yeah, it hurt! So I am a one-handed wonder for the next few weeks. It could have been a lot worse, at least I didn't break anything!!! Nothing like a bit of drama.

Welcome home, wounded warrior! Your pictures are lovely, and I can't wait to see more. So sorry about the bike accident. We used to scout each town we traveled to for the local ER since one of our sons was so accident-prone. Maybe you can do some fabric painting with just the one good hand.

Big ouch Michelle! I hope your hand heals quickly so that you can use it again and the photos of your trip are fantastic.
