vacay...

mr. pop pirate and i went on a much needed vacation for our 8/12 anniversary...it has been over a year and a half since the last holiday off on our own, without kid, dogs, cat, birds, plants, work...we made our way down on our big adventure to pagosa springs...it's a cute little village just this side of the new mexico border...here's mr. looking awefully handsome with the vista of the collegiate ranges...we were only a few hours outside of denver here...

we got on our way...going just a few miles an hour too fast...ahem...the trooper was facing the opposite way...i looked behind us and the line of cars and he had certainly turned around and, wow, had his lights going....hmmm...so mr. pop pirate, in his true form (read: many cops ditched in his younger years),we flew off on a blm land road and skirted around the bend... on rd 49xx apparently...


we found ourselves out here...not bad...(we were not followed...)

we made the final climb up the continental divide and stood in awe of wolf creek pass...this is mr. making me nervous...

another view....
we soaked in the mineral hot springs ( a lot like yellowstone park)...climbed to a waterfall...looked at the prices of property ...



and had a restful time of four days (read: we napped a lot)...

in the end we said good bye to our fab bed and breakfast...and made the long roadtrip home...


good bye...

my goal is to vacation a lot sooner than in another year...

p.s. the rush concert at redrocks on wednesday evening was so fun, and it didn't get rained out this time...

p.p.s more art soon i promise myself...
