Summer afternoon – summer afternoon;
to me, those have always been
the two most beautiful words in the English language.
– Henry James
During our time in town, one day we drove to the mountains and enjoyed riding the steam train in Cripple Creek.
And one night we visited the Flying W Ranch which was so much fun. Although the Waldo Canyon fire in 2012 completely destroyed the Ranch, they reopened last summer with a new facility and a new band. The property is beautiful even though many of us remember with fondness what the original ranch was like.
We packed quite a bit into our week of vacation and are so thankful for the means and time to do it.
