Texas, New Mexico, Colorado

Please excuse my absence. Last Monday, Joe and I left for a quick trip to Colorado to pick up our grandsons. I’ve been to New Mexico and Colorado, but never on this route. Even though most states have a unique look (and some more than one, ahem), it’s amazing how much the terrain changes around the states’ borders.

Typically, I’m not a mountain person. It seems that most people are drawn to either mountains, water (specifically the ocean) or deserts. I’m an ocean girl. Living on Galveston Island is one of my favorite daydreams.

However, I must say – Colorado was stunningly beautiful.



And then we got into the Aspens.

Lots more on this tomorrow.

  1. Great pictures, Carla! Hope you have a safe, enjoyable trip.

    btw, I sent you an e-mail re. our itinerary for Tulsa about a week ago. I just wanted to make sure you got it. I hope we’ll be able to get together. 🙂
