Looking out from my son's deck reveals many of the beautiful and prominent red rocks just west of Denver. The Red Rocks of this area represent a unique transition between the Great Plains and the Rocky mountains.
Besides a beautiful Red Rock Amphitheater in the area, the Red Rocks provide many ways for both locals and tourists to enjoy amazing Colorado. There you will find miles of hiking paths, biking trails as well as many picturesque picnic areas.
With the snows halting this afternoon, we all took the opportunity to go hiking including Baby Bella. Here are some of the photos we took as we went out from Chad's back deck, along the 14th fairway, and up into the foothills.
This evening, we'll be experiencing liquid nitrogen ice cream at the Crushery, rock climbing on Saturday, and tubing on Sunday.
In the days and weeks to come, it is my intent to post photos and share my many rich and fulfilling Arizona experiences. Hopefully, this blog will engender and create an interest on the part of the reader to know more about the diversity of the "Grand Canyon State" and possibly visit. (November 23rd, 2009)
I was born and raised in the cold country of Minnesota. After spending thirty seven years in education, retirement in Arizona was my answer. Today, my interests and passions include traveling, playing tennis and being with my grandchildren.
