Snow Mountain Ranch October 9-11th

Ahhh... at long last, I enjoyed a much needed and yet all too short getaway to the mountains last weekend. We ALL had fun, but let's focus on my perfect traveling companion, Bongie!

It was a little chilly up at Snow Mountain Ranch, but nothing that this little power-house couldn't handle (and still look cute, too!)!

The scenery around our cabin was fabulous, so we didn't have to wander far for some great photo ops! Below is the view looking kind of in a north-easterly direction towards the main Administration area of the camp.

Looking south-ish from our cabin, which by the way, was the Hermosa.

We got up to the mountains in time to still enjoy the lingering fall colors, and our cabin had little aspens surrounding it on 3 sides. Below, Bongie enjoying a introspective moment with her little pig:

Enjoying hot chocolate outside the Hermosa...

More hot chocolate, and lunch with the pig:

Even more hot chocolate (can you tell yet that Bongie LOVES hot chocolate???) in the sun:

The view from the front door of the Hermosa:

On the way home, we went through the Rocky Moutnain National Park-- it was absolutely breathtaking! And whooo--those hairpin turns?! More than a little scary! The best images, however, are those that I did not take-- driving through the clouds, the narrow roads with tall trees on both sides, majestic views over steep drops...

A short pit stop at the trail through the Continental Divide where Bongie basked in the sun (and ICY winds!) f0r a few moments. Then we raced against the in-coming storm the rest of the way back to Denver...

Well, so long until next time!
