Trying to find the sweet spot

Too much heat in one direction, too much rain in the other. So I'm back near Leadville, by Twin Lakes. (The lakes are on the other side of that small hill where the tree-admiring couple is sitting.) Wind cooled things down and kept the storm—and bugs—away. The "campground" is a parking lot, but it will do for a couple of days. If it does rain, I'm on gravel rather than dirt, which turns to mud.


  1. If you've never been on Trail Ridge Rd. (ending at Estes Park), it's a spectacular drive. Course, that depends on whether or not you're still in Colorado after the 4th; surely wouldn't attempt it over the holiday.

    1. Yes, I was there a couple of weeks ago. I just didn't blog about it. It was very nice. I made the mistake, though, of going on a weekend. At least I got an earlier start than most people, so it wasn't that bad.

  2. The spot you're at gives the feeling of space, peacefulness, freedom... LIKE IT !!!
