Monday


The Georgetown/Silver Plume loop railway...once a part of a railroad network between mining towns in the Colorado Rockies. Now, a historical reminder, popular with families and school groups.
Colorado is still very much a train state, even now. Listening to the forlorn and thrilling moan and whistle of trains in the night is possibly my favorite thing about living in Denver, with its working trainyards. Working trains and "ski trains" are still active through the mountain corridors, and Denver is still to some extent an active hub for train travel, as is Grand Junction.
Colorado's current presence in the midst of its own history is one of the reasons I so deeply love this state.

I am smitten: I love the mosaics you put together of so many endearing images! :-)

The dogwoods are blooming late,
but oh so beautifully.

Whenever I see you all as a family I just think of how blessed you are...no one is lacking any love in your family.

Loving all the images. So much to do there and just the weather to do it in. It is scalding and humid here. As soon as you get out of the house mosquitos envelop you. I need winter again and soon!

Those vignettes are stunning. Love your hair in pig tails.

I have two little peeps who'd love to have such a cool train to ride. You have a sweet deal - but, then, you already know that...

What beautiful landscape! Kids are the cutest when they are asleep (gives mommy and daddy a much needed break as well)
