......Camping Trip to the Rockies!!!

Hello my friends! Just wanted to let you know that I'll be gone for a few days...honey and I are taking a camping trip up to the Rocky Mountains! I'm so excited...it's going to be fabulous!!! We will be leaving Friday morning and will be back home some time Sunday evening. This will probably be our last little excursion of the summer.
The Rocky Mountains are one of the most beautiful places in the states to visit! We live in the northeastern corner of Colorado...it's just plain ol' flat land where we live...but it's great for farming! Hehe! The Rockies aren't too far away from us...it'll be about a 3 hour drive...ohhh, and what a drive...so scenic! Well...you can see for yourself...the photo mosaic that I created are all photos of the great Rocky Mountains! We have been wanting to camp up in the mountains all summer...and we're just now getting around to doing it! We figured we'd better do it now...it will just be too cold to really enjoy camping...in just a short time. In fact, it will be plenty cool up there...right now the day time temps are in the high 60's to low 70's and it's dropping down into the 40's at night! Thank the Lord for good heat in our little camping trailer! Hehe!
We're planning on doing a little sight seeing...it's hard telling exactly where we'll end up! Hehe! We're pretty spontaneous that way....that's just the way we "roll" when we travel! We do hope to find a great camping spot...ahhh, far up in the forested mountains...down by a little stream! We hope to do a little "nature watching"....you never know what we may see...deer, elk, big horn sheep...hopefully no bears! Eeeks! I'll be out looking for pretty wildflowers...I'm taking my camera and we're taking the fishing poles...love that fresh stream rainbow trout...hope that we can catch a few because we'll be cooking out on the campfire! I am throwing a couple of steaks in the frig...just in case...wink! Hehe! Ohhh yes...I'm taking my sketch book, a good book to read, and the scrabble game too!!! I'm really looking forward to this little Rocky Mountain retreat!!!
Anyway...I will see you when we get home...sometime Sunday!
Love ya'll,

PS....Don't forget about Sunday Favorites this week! I've already prepared a Sunday Favorites post and Mr. Linky will be up and running! Crossing my fingers...you know how fickle he can be at times!
My Sunday Favorites post will be published Saturday at 6:00pm. Hope to see you there!!! I'm looking forward to seeing your favorite posts from the past...I'll catch up with you when I get home!!! Thank you....Love ya'll!!!

Hey Chari, It's me again... Is there any way I can see the RMS that you are talking about? I tried to find it on the website but not sure what I am looking for. Thanks!

Oh Chari,
You should be a writer too! You just made that sound like the most wonderful, delicious trip in the world! Last time I was in the Rockies was about 1983 so I think I'm due. In fact, the air fare from MSP to Denver is always cheap since its such a straight shot. Now, wouldn't that be a fun get-together. My wheels are turning! We had a wonderful time in Door County, just a little too short! Now, for those bears, well you know if there by me in Wisc. then I'm sure there up in the Rockies. Be Careful! HEHE, I know you will! Well my dear the mosaic you made is just gorgeous! Oh, I so want to go too! Have Fun, Hugs, Cindy

Have fun!! Now, you know, this indoors girl does not envy you camping; but I do enjoy seeing our beautiful mountains up close and personal. Be safe. Sally

Oh Chari.. this sound so fun.. Are you going to Estes Park (sp?)..do you remember when you first came to RMS I told you about my family in Denver? Well during one of our rare and precious visits we went there.. and it was so beautiful.. I will be sending my prayers for your good health and ability to rest and truly enjoy God's glory and beautiful scenery. Take care dear girl.. can't wait to see the pics. Love, Cindy

Sounds like fun. The thoughts of camping never appeals to me. But each time I do go camping I always love it. I haven't been in years. I'd love to camp in the Rockies though. But I wouldn't want to see any bears either. Can't wait to see the photos. Have fun & stay warm.
