backyard adventures

Now that we’ve been in our new locale for almost three weeks (oh my, does time fly!), I thought I’d share some snippets about the area.  In the midst of house hunting and getting our bearings here, we have finally been able to explore a tiny bit of our “backyard”……the Colorado National Monument.  The west entrance to this amazing national park is literally a few minutes from our rental house.  And, if all goes well, the east entrance of the park will be quite close to our new-to-us and permanent home in a few months.

In this case, a picture (or several!) is worth more than a thousand words.  For two weekends in a row now, we have had the best backyard adventures ever!  (And, from what I’ve seen thus far, I think we are raising three little mountain goats….)
