The mountains are calling…

The mountains are calling and I must go. — John Muir It’s inevitable. I will always end up in the mountains. My brother (who is sojourning with me on this adventure) and I spent the better part of Saturday and Sunday in and around Estes Park. I don’t recall exactly, but I probably haven’t been […]

Chasing Autumn

Autumn is one of my favorite seasons (second only to winter, but that’s an entirely different trip). From the brisk air, to confetti colors dotting the landscape, to hayrides, pumpkin pie, and apple cider. There is nothing quite like a great autumn day. And since I live in Texas now, I mean that quite literally. […]

Piano vs. Piano!

So, last night I did something I’ve never done before (hey, no wisecracks from the peanut gallery!)… I went to a bar (ok, so maybe I’ve been to a bar before…ahem…a long time ago…). Anywho, this was no ordinary bar…this was a piano bar. And not just any old ordinary piano bar, mind you. This […]

Getting My 80′s Fix

Back Where I Started From

Well, we made it back home… I guess my friend Winter didn’t want us to leave so soon. We drove through a blinding snowstorm in northern New Mexico on the way back. There were traces of snow as far south as Amarillo. But we outran him, and by the time we got home it was […]

Farewell, Winter

Well, my friend, our time together was much too brief. Thanks for sending all the snow! Until we meet again…

A Great Day on the Slopes

14 inches of new snow! What an awesome day on the slopes at Wolf Creek Ski Area! The sun was shining, and the snow was perfect. To give you an idea, I will reluctantly admit that while traversing down a moderately challenging (for me anyway, given the infrequency that I get to go skiing) blue […]
