Well today instead of going to the Royal Gorge, we decided to stay here in La Veta to rest and relax. With last week’s busy-ness, it felt good to just sit around and do nothing. Mid-afternoon we decided it would be fun to drive up to Cuchara and visit some of the lakes my mom grew up seeing. Here are a few photos from the day’s adventure.
This is Blue Lake. It wasn’t very blue.
After we finished “blazing a new trail” our stomachs told us that they needed some food. We stopped in Cuchara for dinner at The Dog Bar. I had fried chicken and garlic french fries. I would love to show you a picture of that delicious meal, but sadly, I didn’t think to take one after I had eaten everything. Opps. But I will tell you, it was some of the best fried chicken I had ever had. We let that digest for a bit and then my mom, sister, and I went for a walk around the neighborhood. The cabins are so cute (yes, I said that) and cozy.
But the flowers, oh the flowers. They were so rich and colorful. I’ve heard that flowers are what “amateurs photograph.” Well that’s a big, fat lie! Flowers make excellent photos. And I will continue to photograph them.
And so, that was our day trip through the Rockies. It was really relaxing. The weather is perfect. It’s quiet. The air is fresh and the people are few. Ahhh, finally, a vacation. :)
