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

Last night Tom and I headed over Slumgullion Pass, on a rainy cool evening, to the opening night dinner, and play at our favorite repertory theater (about an hours drive).
It is truly a beautiful trip, even in this weather. Note, we do not have to deal with a lot of traffic. That is Bristol Head Peak ahead on the left.
Zooming in, and through the windshield.
The dinner is always in an old mine, now the community center, under this mountain.
The twinkly lights marking the entrance.
Then, it is a short walk...or drive since it was raining, to the old Opera House, that now houses the theater, and has for fifty years.
Posing here, at intermission, with two Lake City friends(me on the left). Ceil and Sandra, and I are all three hostesses in Lake City at the wildly successful :) Victorian High Tea, held in August. Oh, the play was Guys and Dolls, and it was terrific. It was a long drive back over the mountain. I have to stay awake and watch for animals, for the driver, that seem to like to hang out on the warm pavement late at night. The trees on top of the pass had fresh snow on them, on our return trip. A fun filled evening.
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!
