Well, this is a crazy catch up week for me, plus we are seeing so many beautiful things here in Colorado Springs that I want to do these blogs. However, to do them, I am in Starbucks and Russ and dogs are sleeping in the car. We just got reservations for Sante Fe spot Saturday nite-we will drive 6+ hours to get there. We have young friends with baby there. They are who I went to see last summer (the one before this) when they got married. Now I will hold my Gooding friend’s grand baby myself.
Russ and I took the cogwheel train up to the top of Pikes Peak. Sat with a 20 year old air force wife. She was darling-grew up on Long Island and had some good stories about the hurricane. Her college in Vermont is still reeling from the floods.
We have been sharing a bit of sun with quite a bit of cloud cover and yesterday and today, rain drops so heavy and straight down, you think it is a joke. While up on the mountain we just took pictures, but talked to a German family visiting their daughter who lives here. They took the picture of the two of us by the sign.
However, when I got off the train and walked around taking pictures I felt pretty heavy duty elevation problems. My friend Pat said not to go to Machu Pichu. What I noticed was white light around me and dizziness. Also I was tired when we got to the bottom and could not shop in
Guess I will have to go back and visit it tomorrow.
Russ has probably had all the nap time he needs and I better go. I’ve been here almost 4 hours and met a table full of people three times now.
