Whew! It's been a busy time. I will get to part two of the Subway hike next post. I just wanted to let you know that we are back home in Lovely Ouray. We arrived to snow-less and mild tee shirt weather... but that has since changed (of course). Several days of snow and still snowing now. It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas, just in the "Saint Nick" of time.
Bobbie baked a birthday cake for Marathon Man Leonard, who is a hundred and *% years old now. I went down to the Ouray Brewery and bought him something I liked :))... a growler of Colorado Gold. Yum! The ole Texan is experimenting with a winter in Lovely Ouray and so far the weatherman has cut him a break. He biked almost every day we were gone! Like I said, things have changed :))
We left Goldilocks stored in the Saint George area and drove home in Sue Bee. The plan is to pick Goldie up after the first of the year and continue our travels. With Goldie in St. George, we are looking forward to traveling a different route to southern Arizona this year. Who knows where we'll go, but I've been eyeing a return to Death Valley :)). Quartzite might be a good place to purchase a solar panel or two and get that expense over with. I'm pretty sure Goldie is a "keeper," so I don't mind spending a little on the old gal. She was quite comfy for our six week outing to Utah. The only problem is, she get's a little thirsty between ports of call. We don't move much so that's ok. We'll try and keep our carbon footprint small; it's not like we're racing back and forth across the USA anymore.
I got the fire going... sitting in my easy chair and watching it snow. After this storm clears out we'll be headed up Red Mountain for some snowshoe adventures above 10,000 feet. It's been a while since we've been up there; I hope we can re-adjust to the altitude. It seems to take a little longer to do that every time we come back from the desert.
Till January "something," you'll be finding us here in Lovely Ouray, for a White Christmas in the "Switzerland of America." I'll be featuring snow, snow, and more snow photos... walking our pretty little downtown streets... making the rounds to local breweries... watching ice climbers... and just making Merry in the holiday season, while keeping an eye on the calendar, of course :)) You like snow, don't you? Come join us for a White Christmas in Lovely Ouray... you don't even need long pants!
Mark and Bobbie... home for the holidays!
