Good morning everyone-As some of you know I visited Colorado last year in August and had a grand time and got to meet 4 Active Rainers. Mary Douglas was the first. She lives in Glacier Meadow Colorado. She is way up in the mountains and it is a beautiful place to call home.
The second two I got to meet were Debi Boucher and Sondra Meyer: We met for lunch in Colorado Springs. Then I met my 4th Active Rain friend on the last leg of my trip and that is a newbie named Dale Poll . Sondra, Dale and I covered a lot of territory in three days.
These are pics from two of the places we went which was the Denver Botanical Gardens which was made even more beautiful by the Dale Chihuly exhibit. The balloons were from the Balloon Fest in Colorado Springs. A early morning event. My first time seeing it. It was awesome.
Mary Douglas and Debi Boucher are 2 Active Rain friends that I have known the longest so it was wonderful to get to meet them. Now there is a Active Rain friend from Colorado that I did not know at that time but have gotten to know her this year and we have become great friends and her name is Debbie Laity
She has become a great supporter of my blogs even going back in my archives and making comments which is super nice of her and makes me feel very special. We also spoke on the phone a couple months ago and it was like talking to an friend that I have known for years.
So I am planning another trip to Colorado next year in the summer or early Fall and I will be meeting Debbie Laity on that trip. I look forward to that. I know we will have a grand time and I will get to see another area of Colorful Colorado. She lives in Cedaredge Colorado.
She was picking on me telling me I needed to do a new blog so I thought why not share some of the pics from last years Colorado trip. If you don't know Debbie Laity I highly recommend that you check out her blogs and get to meet the special lady I have come to know and admire greatly.
