I just wanted to check in from the road. We’ve been out and about in the American West. Some pretty country, to say the least: Garden of the Gods and Pike’s Peak in Colorado, Santa Fe in New Mexico, and we’re in Mesa Verde National Park now. That’s the view from our patio, looking west toward the Four Corners. Being on vacation, I haven’t had a lot of time to report on things. I’ll certainly write about some of all this when I’m back, but for now, suffice it to say, this is a beautiful part of the United States and one agency, the National Park Service, is doing a great job. We’re heading up the road to two more national parks in the next few days: Black Canyon of the Gunnison NP then Rocky Mountain NP.
Here’s a shot I took of Long House at Mesa Verde.
