We landed in Colorado last week and hit the ground running. Literally and figuratively.
Literally: a long, muddy hike in “Dry” Creek (it’s been super rainy here lately), multiple runs on my favorite local trail system, Buzzard Gulch.
Family hike at Dry Creek
Happy, muddy girls.
Figuratively: spending hours updating resumes, writing cover letters, and searching for jobs. Stephane: chopping wood, fixing Dan’s weed whacker, and, as I type, he’s outside trying to fix D & K’s pop-up camper so they can enjoy the great outdoors this weekend. It’s SO NICE to be accomplishing things again; to relax at the end of the day with a glass of wine knowing you earned those sips of fruity cheer. Big difference.
The smile says it all. He’s one happy guy, digging into projects (thank you Dan and Karen for providing them 🙂
Re-wiring the cable for the pop-up.
This morning, Tom, Melisa, and Stéphane took bikes to Buzzard Gulch while I ran with Myra.

Tom catching some air. Look at those fat tires!
While we were off sailing about, the good people of BLM put in a new trail at Buzzard Gulch! I hope its name, “The New Trail”, is a temporary one…Come on, you can get more creative than that!

Met back up with the bikers!
Great morning on the trails. Now…back to finding some jobs…!
