Scenes from Rocky Mountain National Park

We visited Rocky Mountain National Park a few weeks ago, but I just finished editing photos today. I can’t fit my favorites into one blog post, so I’m splitting it into three. I’ve skied in Colorado many times, but this is the first time in my adult life that I’ve visited in the summer. I was blown away by how pretty it is. This is a place I could never tire of.

Photo of the Day: Denver Christmas Lights

During our Thanksgiving trip to Denver last week, we went to the downtown lighting ceremony and walked around the nearby shops while admiring the Christmas lights. The Denver event is nothing like the Country Club Plaza lighting in Kansas City in terms of scale, beauty, and crowds, but I actually enjoyed the low-key evening. It was picture-perfect, don’t you think?

Day 61: My favorite sport

I didn’t play a lot of sports in school, but I went skiing in Colorado with my Dad almost every year from the time I was 6 years old. The last few years we haven’t been able to make the trip, but we still try to have a father-daughter day at Snow Creek. Yesterday I took a half day off work, and we were two of only a handful of people on the slopes! Since it was so deserted, we had a lot of fun goofing off in the terrain park on one of the mini jumps. No injuries to report. 🙂
