Early on in our married lives we did not take too many vacations. In fact, until my parents determined to get the family back to Lake Taneycomo in the early 1990’s our vacations were limited to home for the holiday visits. As the girls got older, we tried to take some short trips. We did take them on a couple of long trips tied in with a meeting or convention I was attending.
Several years ago we took a friend up on an offer to use a cabin on the Rio Grande. Now it is hard for us to think about a summer without heading to Colorado for at least a long weekend.
Tommie and Jason could not make our July 4th trip so we took a second trip this year over the long Labor Day Weekend. It was fun to see Jason take in sights and sounds he had not before.
One evening I went out and took some photos of the full moon over the Rio Grande. Night shots are a bi difficult. But, I really like the feature of reflections in photos and often include them in a Friday Photo.
A few days in Colorado, at a different pace of life, provide a great opportunity for personal reflections as well.
