Colorado or Bust

blog 1At the end of July, Morgan and I had a chance to go to Colorado for work. He had company stuff to do and I was lucky enough to hitch a ride. I have never been to Colorado and it was sooo beautiful! And of course, it is ALWAYS fun when we get to go on any trip, just the two of us. It was very rainy when we were there, but coming from Arizona, where the weather was holding steady at 115 degrees, it was heavenly!

When Morgan didn't have to be at work, we took long drives in the mountains, and not just any mountain range, the ACTUAL Rocky Mountains! Wow, nature can be soooo beautiful!

And we did keep oxygen on hand for me, because sometimes the elevation was reaching 11,000ft or more.

Here is the mine in Climax, Colorado. In that tall building you can see in the distance is an elevator that goes 5,000ft down to the underground mine! Not an elevator ride I would ever take. I think I would be having a bit of anxiety!

I also really loved all the tunnels that went through the mountains.
