Tuesday Travelogue-December 9th

Real Estate Agent with John L Scott Market Center 700512026

Welcome to the ongoing weekly series called Tuesday Travelogue. We are in our twentythird  week! Each week, some ActiveRain bloggers are spotlighted to take us somewhere we may not have been on some kind of virtual travel (and it doesn't cost a dime!). Here is the purpose:



" to enjoy the ride"

"take a trip without even leaving the farm"

"expand your horizons"

"see through someone else's eyes"

 and hopefully much more!


(Be sure and click on the links in blue.) It's time to get back to the travels across America....we wandered the globe last week and now we need to (regretfully) leave California behind, although I could spend a few weeks there, easily, couldn't you?

Colorado has lots to offer, certainly! I have spotlighted many of the "locals" from ActiveRain, so today, I want to see if I can find some who haven't been seen on Tuesday Travelogue before. I found some hidden gems!

Here's one!

Chautauqua Park









John Marshall shows us one of the world-class areas to go to in Boulder for triathletes around the world! Not only does John showcase this area, but he inspires us to get off the couch or away from the computer!

When I travelled through Colorado umpteen years ago, there were certain discoveries that I marvelled over. The trees, the terrain, the mountains--all so magical. There is SO much to offer for eye-candy!


I also discovered this realtor/photographer in Vail, CO--mostly known for skiing, but I found a photo of John Nilsson's that brought back those autumn colors that I miss right now in December! He does/did a daily photo and I had a grand time checking them all out!

Aspen Glen Lane

 I decided to check out some of the towns that I drove through oh-so-long ago (1979, to be exact) and one of the places I was drawn to was Steamboat Springs. And I found another blogger new to me, Charlie Dresen.

This delight is from Independence Day 2014! Now, I would think of Texas, seeing a photo like this, so this happens elsewhere, too! 

Another new blogger introduced to me via "Local Info" is Erik Gruenwald. This particular piece is a story of history and what takes place now on Lookout Mountain, Golden, CO  He's got the right idea telling us interesting facts about his area and he also had a blogpost called Things to Do In Golden Colorado, which as a newbie is EXACTLY the right thing to do to attract new buyers! Go say hi and congratulate him for being on the right track. 








Normally I end with four posts/bloggers, but today I felt like ending on an "Amazing" note. This was back in 2013, but a great visit regardless to Grand Junction. Thank you, Cheryl Dickson

Hey, everybody, speaking of travel....Larry and I (along with our four-legged children sans Rocky) are heading for LongBeach, WA, on the Pacific coastline for a couple of days of R&R to celebrate his b-day and our anniversary!

I promise to "have my camera in hand" Roy Kelley, and maybe a travel piece to share upon our return!
