On the road again… Hmm, sounds like a song!
We drove 500 miles today and finally arrived in Denver for the last game tomorrow. It was a beautiful, albeit long, drive. I didn’t even feel like reading, or working on the computer, or cutting coupons. So, we have lots of pictures! I’m sure that many look the same so I’ll just share a few.
My Happy Hubby; driving along the Colorado River
Farms; and wind farms up close
tunnels through the mountains
Train tracks; and here’s the train!
Mountains everywhere! Layers of color; snow on top
Ski runs and Ski lodges
The road; and the road above (the westbound lane)
For miles and miles it was nothing but sandy soil and little vegetation. But once we got near the Colorado River everything greened up. We saw farming including crops, wineries, horses, and cattle. The mountains surrounded us at all times — sometimes driving up and over one, sometimes driving in a narrow gorge between them. I found it interesting how many different kinds there were — some rocky, some with dark evergreens mixed with light green trees; some with low-growing bushes. It was a marvelous drive and this trip is how we make memories. We add another chapter to our 50 Years of Memories.
Ceramic Thought for the Day
With all these pictures it brings to mind frames to put them in.
Small frames for small pictures.
Set the first five on a shelf or make the last group as fridge magnets.
Christmas Tree ornaments hold small school pictures.
A great gift for Grandma!
A little graduate figure and a frame for the graduation photo.
An ornate frame for your painted 8″ square tile.
A framed flying eagle picture — picture & frame are both in the mold.
We also have a framed cardinal picture like this, but no photo to show.
If you are interested in more information on any of the frames, just send an
email to CarolsCarouselCreations@gmail.com or PM our Facebook page.
