Cherry Creek State Park, Denver, CO

We left Buena Vista on 24 September.   CCSP was a few hours away.   We’ll be staying 2 weeks in the state park so we purchase an annual pass ($70) – and even with that added to cost of campgrounds the per day rate was great.   100′ pull through sites, FHU.  We were behind some trees so we had trouble with reception on the satellite….OTHER than that we will return to this park.   It was great.    Running trails all over.   And 4 miles from Vanessa and Sergei.     YAY!!!!!01-DSC_0015 02-DSC_0020 03-DSC_0023 04-DSC_0025 05-DSC_0027 06-DSC_0028 07-DSC_0031 08-DSC_0032 09-DSC_0054 10-DSC_0063 He caught some dinner! 12-DSC_0078 13-DSC_0083 14-DSC_0089 15-DSC_0094 16-DSC_0095 17-DSC_0097

Yellowstone National Park

There really is much I can write about everything in YNP.   It’s a beautiful park that speaks for itself.     Hope you enjoy the views we have seen.01-DSC_0004 02-DSC_0005 03-DSC_0011 04-DSC_0016 05-DSC_0019 06-DSC_0021 07-DSC_0024 08-DSC_0031 09-DSC_0035 10-DSC_0041 11-DSC_0044 12-DSC_0047 13-DSC_0050 14-DSC_0058 15-DSC_0065 16-DSC_0082 17-DSC_0093

We decided to hike up to the observation overlook 200′ above Old Faithful.  Along the way:19-DSC_0105 20-DSC_0109 21-DSC_0118 22-DSC_0125 23-DSC_0127

Heading to West Yellowstone, MT

Take a closer look!     These are sculptures!     YEP – from a distance they appeared to be horses on the range as we’ve seen so many times.    But, then I noticed none were moving!    LOL01-DSC_0033

Okay – had to include another view!02-DSC_0035

And a closeup!    The Western half of the North American continent is covered with sculptures, but I believe this one ranks as one of the best. 03-DSC_0038
