March Christmas

Buen Dia!
We have just returned from the Rocky Mountains.
KD met us at the airport with a wonderful surprise in tow............Ian.............I cried, it was so unexpected.
So the four of us had a cold and snowy visit!


It was a March Christmas. KD still had her Christmas tree up. All of the mountain towns must have known we were coming because they still had their lights and decorations up as well.




KD lives at over 9,500 feet. I have not been that high since 1983, when I climbed Mount Ranier (did not make it to the top), and had to overnight at over 10,000.
During this Colorado visit, I lagged behind on all of our day trips; I was breathless going up and down KD's condo stairs. I was deep breathing just opening the fridge.







We took a few day trips, among them were visits to Vail and Brekenridge.
A day was spent skiing by Senor and KD at Vail, after Ian had to head back to Seattle for a snowboard event at the Pass.
Great memories came to Senor who spent many winters in high school and college skiing Vail, which was much smaller, and cheaper, in the 60's and 70's. As a Colorado College student, Senor was invited into the dean's office for a visit .........study or ski............said the dean. Senor took off a year, lived off peanut butter and out of dingy basement rooms, but he got in a year of good skiing and then returned and graduated.


















Okay, this is all I have time for.
We are on our way to Bisbee, Arizona, with Senor's brother and his wife (our Copper Canyon traveling companions) and then we will return to Tucson later in the week.
What a great Christmas!

That snow actually looks inviting -- now that our humidity is starting to rise again.
