This morning, we started our day early with a tour of the Denver US mint.  This mint makes all denominations of US coins currently in circulation.  Unfortunately, the tour did not allow us to bring cameras in, so the only picture I have of the mint is from the mint’s website.  The thing that I […]

This morning, we drove from Colorado Springs to Denver, a trip of about an hour. From Denver, we headed northwest to Boulder to go on the Celestial Seasonings factory tour. It was interesting to see what goes into their teas–Celestial Seasonings sells about 75% herbal teas, which are technically not even teas, since they do […]

Today’s adventures began with a cog railway ride up Pike’s Peak. The 8.9 miles of track to the top take over an hour each direction to travel. The ride is narrated on the way up, so the hour flies by. The trip down seemed to take forever. The view from the top was okay, but […]

Today, we spent the morning in back in the hot springs.  In the afternoon, we drove over four hours from Pagosa Hot Springs to Manitou Springs, which is next to Colorado Springs. Since we arrived in the evening, we had a fun dinner at The Mason Jar and then tried to go to Seven Falls.  […]

Today’s adventure started in Mesa Verde National Park, home of the famed cliff dwellings of the Pueblo Ancestors. The park is surrounded on three sides by a Ute Indian reservation, so it takes nearly an hour of driving to reach the cliff dwellings that are near the southern edge of the property. We took an […]

This morning, our adventure started with white water rafting on the Colorado River in Glenwood Springs, CO. We were on a raft with four other people and a guide from Blue Sky tours. We started out with two miles in class three rapids and had a great time getting soaked. Then, we had a twelve […]

Today, we took a 40 mile scenic drive through Rocky Mountain National Park. We saw many scenic overlooks, and traveled on the highest road in the US. We enjoyed seeing how fast the rocks and vegetation changes with elevation. We saw more snow on the ground today, several people on skis, and were able to […]

Today, we landed just after 8am local time in Denver after a nice flight. We rented a Chevy Impala with leather seats and XM satellite radio (both given to us at no extra cost), and drove to Estes Park. We checked into the Twin Owl Motor Lodge, then headed to Rocky Mountain National Park. In […]

Sorry for the lack of posts recently.  A lot has happened–Laura’s high school graduation, finishing up my summer work at Digital Sandbox, and being there for people. Posting should be more consistent the next week, as I will be in Colorado on vacation.  I will be journaling on here when I have internet access and […]

There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. For the law of the Spirit of life has set you free in Christ Jesus from the law of sin and death. For God has done what the law, weakened by the flesh, could not do. By sending his own Son in […]
