The trail to your inner John Denver

The trail to your inner John Denver

BLUE SKIES.  SEVENTY DEGREES.  CLEAR PINE-SCENTED AIR.  On a day like this Eldorado Mountain Open Space seems like the right place to channel our inner John Denver and maybe see a few birds.

Tim and Candice reported seeing a pair of Golden Eagles a few days ago and we decided to take a look.  No Goldens, darn it — they are my favorites — but we did see 28 species on our three-mile walk.

This is why we are so high on Colorado.  It's our home no matter where in the world we happen to be.

An errand on the drive home took us through Boulder and the heart of the University of Colorado.  CU is nationally ranked #104 academically but #7 — John Elway's number —among the country’s Top Ten party schools.  I can’t imagine the temptations facing an 18 year-old freshman, especially considering that recreational marijuana is legal in Colorado.  Rocky Mountain High-er Education??
