After eating salads at the cabin, we walked Toby through downtown Estes. We parked right by this wonderful library. There's programs for all folks here. I think I'll stick my head in today (Wednesday) and see if they would like a storyteller for children's hour some day soon:)
Beautiful day! We all drank coffee and tea this morning and said our goodbyes to Bob. He headed back down to Denver to finish off his filming. I jog/walked on our Estes Lake trail this afternoon and enjoyed all the folks who were out and about.
Loved the sign - as if my jog/walk would run folks over - haha. I had to take a picture. I do remember 20 years ago I was running a slick 8 minute mile and I'm sure that sign was made for me then (haha). The lake has a 5 mile circular path that extends all the way around. I jog 1.5 miles to the Estes Lake Marina and turn around. There's bike riders and strollers that share the trail - pretty cool!
I thought I would try my hand at blogging while in my favorite vacation spot - Estes Park, Colorado. Chuck and I have two weeks to hike and find other adventures in and around Rocky Mountain National Park and Roosevelt National Forest. The picture is my parents' cabin that we have been visiting every summer since the early 80's.
We arrived Monday evening greeted by my brother Bob. It was so wonderful to see him and spend time talking. He's a camera man and runs a production company called Palidrome Productions. He's filming in Denver right now so he took a quick trip to the cabin to recoup for a few days. He had been sick but then was hit by a woman who ran a red light Sunday morning. No one was hurt but Bob's Ford rental was totaled. Air bags deployed and Bob didn't have a scratch on him - thank you God!
The picture above is an early morning hike Bob took to Twin Sisters. He enjoys time lapse photography so he spent several hours up there running his GoPro camera. Our Traverse broke down on highway 25 that day in downtown Denver so we couldn't make the hike. Our transmission hose busted. No worries though, Chuck pulled out his motorcycle from our trailer and sped off to buy the needed tools and supplies and in about 1 hour we were on the road again as Willy Nelson sings:)
Here's a picture of Bob on the right, my husband, Chuck and our sweet dog, Toby on the deck of my parents' cabin.
Hello everyone. My name is Sue Kuentz and am recently retired from teaching for 33 years. I'm beginning my new trails of learning by teaching on the college level, presenting storytelling and ELA workshops and performing as a storyteller in schools. Writing is essential for me to keep my creative juices flowing and what better way to accomplish this but through a daily blog. My husband and I, along with our dog are relaxing in Estes Park, CO so here's a bit of journaling of the trip.
