We returned to hike Lovell Gulch today after moving away 3 years ago. We used to hike here about once a week. It is generally 10 degrees cooler than Colorado Springs and the birds were singing their hearts out.

We enjoy Summit County in the winter for skiing, hiking and cycling in the summer. There are several National campgrounds around the lake but Heaton Bay is our favorite. Safeway is a couple of miles away in the town of Frisco. The bike trail runs along side the campground. You can ride to Vail, Keystone or Breckenridge.

The drive thru the mountains from Buena Vista to Littleton, Colorado was so pretty after all of the rain. We enjoy Chatfield State Park so much, lots of space and full hookups. They have bike trails all over the Denver area along the South Platte river and streams.

We haven't been to Buena Vista in a while. Everything was beautiful and river running high after all of the rain we have received.

After so much rain this month, it was good to get out with the Pikes Peak Over the Hill Gang for a morning hike.

Colorado is great in the summer. As excited as we are to be starting a new chapter in our life, we are waiting until the end of summer to be on our way. We have been fortunate to have good friends to spend time riding our bikes and hiking with after a long winter inside. I don't think they really get what we are planning to do. We are a little glad that everyone doesn't want to do the same. Who else would take care of the grocery stores and send us our mail if everyone was gone? Our kids are not surprised since Debbie has worked 3 month contracts as an ICU traveling nurse over the past 12 years and they see our passion for travel and meeting new people. It is a process getting things in order to totally change the way a person is living. As we go thru things, giving away some and packing away others, it is fun to remember our past giving pictures to our kids and laughing at the memories. I am glad we didn't leave it for them to go thru when we aren't able to share what they ment to us.We have a contract on the house, an offer to buy our furniture, the travel trailer is getting tuned up for our summer and most of our belongings that we don't need given away. We will move across town and enjoy the summer in the mountains but ready to leave when the time is right. Gore Creek, Vail, Colorado
