Sharing my adventures in the Colorado mountains in the summer, and beautiful Ft. Worth Texas in the winter.

I was surprised the first time I saw the high school in our new neighborhood. It seems like all of the newer ones are more like brick boxes with windows, especially in suburbia. I was even more surprised, that it was built in 1936, which was in the middle of the United States depression (1929-39) Well, research tells me that it was funded and built by the W.P.A, (Work Progress Administration) which was a government program to put people to work.With so many people out of work, this emergency enacted program (by our President in 1935), employed over 3.4 million by 1936. I will bet if you look around your American city you can find something built by the W.P.A.
How could one persons life be so different from winter to summer? Well stick around and see. I live in a cosmopolitan city half of the year and then head to a tiny town in the mountains the other half.....a place full of interesting people, beautiful scenery, wild animals......and great adventures!
