One of my favorite songs is, This Is The Day The Lord Has Made. And, it continues... let us rejoice and be glad in it!
We woke to a beautiful morning with a thermometer reading of 47 degrees with a forecasted high in the mid 70's, and we had a great plan for the day.
By 9:30, Jim and Ellie had arrived here in Woodland Park and the four of us loaded in the Jeep. We headed out towards the little town of
Cripple Creek. We drove
through the town and took a left at the end of town and headed on to the
Back Country Roads.
The morning was so great, that soon, we decided to stop and
take the front roof covers off...
little critters, and
We continued our drive on
Shelf Road where we found
curves in the two-way one lane road,
houses built high above the road, and
When the four of us had taken as
many pictures as we could, we decided to head back to Cripple Creek for lunch and to play a few pennies in the local casino.
With mid-afternoon approaching, we needed to head back to Woodland Park, but not before spotting the
the road up Pike's Peak.
On the way back into town, Ellie had Mark take another little side trip down this
back road to a
little cabin in the woods complete with
outhouse out back. This little cabin is one that has been in her family since the early 1940's and is where she spent lots of summers with her grandmother.
Thanks Ellie for sharing your childhood memories with us.
We arrived back at the RV Park. Soon, it was time for hugs as Jim and Ellie needed to get back to The Springs to see about the fur kids. What a great day with great friends.
This day was
beautifully created and we did rejoice in it!
