White Stuff

Snow-capped mountains. Vibrant blue sky. Ghost towns. Wildlife. Hot springs. Great friends. And yummy food. We love Colorado!

We arrived in Colorado Springs over a week ago for my book signing at Focus on the Family, and when we got outside, Kiki picked up a handful of snow and said, "What is this stuff?"

Kiki is now an expert on snow. Over a foot dumped on us as we traveled west to Ouray on Wednesday. But the sun came out today and melted the icy "stuff" off the roads so we hiked and explored and introduced our kids to the wonders of an abandoned mining town (lots of pictures below). No matter where we travel around the world, Colorado will always feel like home.

Thank you to all of our wonderful friends who entertained us while we were in the Springs. It's been an amazing, fun, snowy-white adventure. I wish we could stay another month or two.

Oh how fun! At least your daughters got to see snow while they're kids. I was 18 the first time I saw snow. The joys of living in the tropics. :)
