Spending a week in the mountains was really nice. It was a beautiful escape and has given me renewed energy for my job and life in general. The weather was amazing! Above are the Maroon Bells which we went up to see one evening just before sunset. A couple of folks went up there for sunrise, but I wasn’t all about getting up early. Not a lot of knitting happened, but I do have a couple of additional pictures to share.
We took the Gondola to the top of the mountains in Aspen.
And at the top, we made friends with a Chipmunk…
We don’t have chipmunks in my part of Texas (just their cousins, the squirrel), so I was fascinated. Plus, this little chipmunk posed for us! She allowed me to get this close without a zoom, it was amazing!
And, one more pretty mountain shot (out of about a bazillion mountain shots I took) for good measure…
Hope all is well with you!
Man – I am jealous! I went to the canadian rockies last summer and all I want is to get back to some real mountains. One of my fave places of all time…
Glad it was a rejuvinating break for you! 🙂
That chipmunk is so cute! You should submit the image to Cute Overload!
