Dinosaur National Monument & a little of Oregon

After leaving Denver we drove to Dinosaur National Monument and entered on the Utah side. We stayed in a lovely campground right on the Green River. Here is a picture of our campsite.

And here we are after climbing up to check out some petroglyphs.

We also played around on the kayaks in the Green River--testing out our skills on some mild rapids.

We stayed at Dinosaur for 5 nights and then drove through Salt Lake City and camped for a night near the Bonneville Salt Flats.

Then it was on to Oregon. We stayed 4 nights at a beautiful Oregon State Park at Goose Lake. The deer and quail were plentiful. We even picked apples from some trees in the park and made apple pie!

Summer 2007 in Colorado with friends and family

We arrived back in Colorado in mid May 2007 and first stopped in Durango to see Marcia’s youngest son, Mark. It was beautiful there and Mark had just moved into a rental house with 4 other roommates--they all attend Fort Lewis College. We enjoyed visiting with Mark and meeting his friends and roommates. We spent one Saturday at their house cooking up a batch of Brendan’s Green Chile and Chile Rellenos. Here is a picture Marcia took while kayaking with Mark on a lake outside of Durango.

We spent the rest of the summer in Denver. Here is Marcia with her oldest son, Adam and another of Marcia with her granddaughter, Kaylyn. Kaylyn is 12 years old and just started 7th grade. She is a beautiful young lady, very poised, well mannered and fun to be around. We spent many entertaining times at Adam, Jenni and Kaylyn’s house.

Marcia’s daughter, Laura, also lives in Denver with her daughter Cali. Cali, who is almost 4 years old, is smart and pretty and full of creative energy. Marcia enjoyed spending a lot of time with her and Laura.

This picture below was taken on a trip to the zoo with Kaylyn and Cali. We had a fun time that day.

We also had many nice visits with Marcia’s parents and her sister and brother.

Mark and Rai flew up from Florida for a wedding while we were in town. We had some fun times with them and Bart and Jamie while they were in Denver.

While in Denver, Brendan’s son, Sean, flew out for a visit. It was great to see him and we had some nice times.

Brendan’s daughter, Erin, also came out to visit us. She is a lovely young woman. Here is a picture of her admiring her new shoes and one of her laughing with her friend.

We left Denver near the end of September and have headed west to see the Redwoods.
