Howard this sounds like my kind of place also. I am sure you are going to enjoy what time you have there. Just remember when you are out hiking to be careful. This time of the year there are a lot of mama bears out there with young ones and they are very protective of their young. Make a lot of noise when you are hiking, singing or anything that makes noise will scare them off before you get to them. They normally don't want to be near you but if you walk upon then unannounced they will charge you to protect the young ones.
Be sure and call dad and wish him a Happy Birthday, it is wonderful you have had him all of these years. He will enjoy the phone call from his son.

It appears as if the eagles have indeed landed! Yes, you shall enjoy these digs. Happy Birthday to yur Dad.

How does it feel, Howard, to change jobs and yet not change bosses?

Soak in the spirit within the hills.

Glad all is going well with the two of you and you are happy with your new "digs." Wish your Dad the Happiest of Birthdays from The Hills of Kentucky. They are great folks.


I love the cabins -- I wish I could name them! They would be named for some of the great Native American tribes that have inhabited Colorado at some time. The Pueblos, Apache, Comanche, Arapaho, Utes, Cheyenne, Shoshone.

Visitors might even be interested in a little history, yes?


Read the Journal and I'm really getting anxious. You know how I love nature.I need Jenny to count the days for me. I think we will leave here the 3rd. Can't wait.


I don't know if it will help or what your criteria is on a source for camera equipment, but I received good service from a company in New Jersey called Beach Camera. Back in December, I ordered a Nikon D300 and Nikkor 18-200 VR lens. Even with the new release of the D300, they had some in stock and I had mine in about a week. That was FedEx ground.

Since then, one of my sons ordered a D40 with an 18-55 zoom and a 55-200 zoom. His came in just about as short of time. Then the first of may, we ordered a Kodak camera kit from Beach for my other son. His came in just a few days. He isn't ready for SLR yet and wanted something with good features with some video capability. (He has two sons, one just over 2 and one just over 4 months.)

Enjoy your time there in Colorado. If I had the time, I would almost come up just to meet you and Linda. However, our vacation is planned for August, and I believe we are going to go to a luxury fifth wheel factory for a tour.

One question, if I may...would it be permissible for me to send you a direct e-mail? I know you have the link for such, but I just wanted to get permission before I did so.

Thanks, and enjoy Colorado. We have vacationed in Colorado a lot over the years.

Hey Guys, it looks like a beautiful place. The road to it sounded from you journal to be a real challenge, especially for a big RV.

Happy birthday wishes to your Dad!!!!
