Yesterday was supposed to be an all day trip up Trail Ridge Road and soakin' up the High Country... but... night before, the guy I do my "Day Work" for... (for a few more weeks!) called and asked; Could I fill in Friday for one of the guys that had to go to a funeral...
Well, Hell... sometimes you just can't tell 'em no... so rather than a day in the Mountains... had another day, pushin' plumbing parts and duck feed! :o)
But... Heidi just grabbed the new lil' Nikon, jumped in her Subaru Jalopy, and headed for Denver to take Keriann and lil' Jillian to the zoo.
I guess the lil' one really liked the fish...
... and though this new lil' camera don't have a view finder (gonna take a lil' gettin' used to...) Heidi is gettin' the hang of the artsy fartsy pics too! :o)
But that still left me suckin' wind and loadin' hardware...
So... I did manage to get cut loose 'bout a lil' after 4... so I gassed up that big two wheeler on the way home... we stuffed my ruck with sandwiches, cookies an' wine coolers... climbed on... and put our knees in the wind!... for another night ride up into Poudre River Canyon...
It bein' early June... and so many late storms...that river, is runnin' heavy too!
It's usually just kinda gurgling past this big rock... last night... it was tryin' to push it down the river... but it was pretty nice to just sit by the river... eating our pic nik... sippin' a cooler... uh... right up 'till those two Old Bikers started gettin' frisky on a park bench!
At least... once the sun started goin' down... they climbed back on their scooter... and took it home! :o)
Some Old people.... Sheeesh! :o) actin' like a bunch of dang kids with their hormones hollerin'! :o)
That's how I figure to get it done folks... one day at a time... one... 100 mile ride at a time... If you wait to live... that's what you'll do... wait...
Just climb on that big two wheeler... or, get behind the wheel of that big Ol' diesel... and go! Let your gypsy genes stretch their legs...
Well... I got chores to get done today... and they'll not do themselves... so I better get to 'em... if we're gonna actually get to Crackin' out here in a very few weeks!
Take Good Care

I like her "artsy fartsy" pictures. They're very nice, and the one with the kid and fish is adorable!
Raging rivers can have the kind of effect!! ;) But like you said..Getting behind the old diesel, having it chug along in high gear not doing the speed limit works too. Enjoy the ride! BoB
