Back home again, having come back on Tuesday. It takes a few days to get back into the swing of things! The Arkansas River is so beautiful, runs swiftly and is as clear as glass. Here is one of the "holes" that Bruce worked when trying to uncover some gold!

(click on pictures to enlarge)

See how clear it is? We love this river!

We woke up to snow on the mountain tops a few times.

This is Turquoise Lake. It was beautiful! All of the campgrounds around it were closed already for the season.

It was getting ready to snow so it wasn't looking very "turquoisy"!!

Another snow covered mountain (taken in the campground).

We also drove up to Cottonwood Lake. Our intention was to see if there were any fish in it but since it had been raining, the lake was high and the fish were happy with what had washed down! Oh well, next time! The aspen were already starting to change color.

Beautiful aspen trees and a gorgeous sky!

More aspen..............
Bozwell relaxing (which he finds hard to do since he is not even 2 1/2).........

and Sarah, relaxing, and remembering that it was one year ago that we rescued her........

and Gypsy, loving camping!

Here is Bruce with our good friend, Ken. We have met them in Buena Vista the last 4 years and enjoy every minute with them. They are from Austin, TX and come up to enjoy our cool weather. Ken uses a dredge to get the gold!

Here is Ken and Jeannie's dog, Pepper. She is quite the photogenic gal and blends right in with the gravel!!!

Jeannie and me. We do miss them........

So here we are at home. I picked what is probably the last of the lettuce and spinach---and we have had a fire in the wood stove a few times. We hope to travel up to Bonanza later in the week to check out a campground up there---a change of scenery.

That is all from this end, y'all. Have a great week! :)+
