Rocky Mountain High....we reached Colorado

We are visiting our son in Colorado. He is an intern here for the Forest Service for the summer. Our Oregon mountains back home look like mere hills compared to the Rocky Mountains of Colorado. This image is Heath, Brad & Gunnr in White Owl at an elevation of over 11,000 feet. Click image to Enlarge.

My sketch book is full of images of the mountains, aspen trees, lakes, valleys, wild flowers and so much inspiration for a new landscape quilt I will begin when we return to Oregon.

I did get to Golden Colorado earlier last week to visit the Rocky Mountain Quilt Museum...

I am using Brad's laptop, which is nothing like my sweet Mac computer at home, so I am struggling downloading and editing our travel photos. I will post more images as time allows.

Hoping to take my Paul Harvey quilt hiking tomorrow, so I can get a few photos of Paul in this gorgeous Rocky Mountain country.

We just visited our kids in Denver. Isn't it beautiful? I'll have to check out the quilt museum next time. Have fun!

Oh that view is heaven ! pure heaven ! I love that state.
Some day soon we will call Colorado our home. It is our dream to retire there. Enjoy!
