Winter Park 2012

A one-day trip to Winter Park, wherein so much happened, I may need three days to write about it.

My brother and his wife and kids were up in Winter Park skiing, so Ken and I drove up to do some sightseeing and then spend time with them/eat dinner with them after they got done. We took off about 1:30, after I got back from the art quilt show (more about that later this week when I have the right camera memory card.) We had to stop once we got to Berthoud Pass and take some of those picture that those of us who are lucky enough to live in Colorado have to post every now and then, just to rub it in…..

Well, I have been prevented from making everyone jealous of the beautiful mountain range by the lackluster internet connection at my hotel. I had an unexpected little trip Sunday night. I knew I had to get up bright and early (like 5 a.m. bright and early) to drive out to Yuma, Colorado for a work event. Well, when the 5:30 newscast was talking about blizzard conditions after 3:00 a.m., Ken and I decided it might be a good idea for me to get on the road and spend the night in Yuma, rather than drive in the morning in snow and 50 mph winds.

So, you are going to have to wait until tomorrow to see the beautiful pictures. I can report we had a lovely time, there are many places to shop I did not have time to go to, and that they should give everyone a free wine tasting when they enter to town to encourage shopping. It certainly worked with me. I bought: wine (of course), a crab soap holder, an interesting yellow wall decoration, a book, a print by a Colorado artist, and an original water color by a Colorado artist. We need to go back sometime in the summer when there is not so much snow…..

So, sorry for the short entry tonight, but I better sign off this rather wimpy wireless and get to sleep! I may have an exciting drive home!
