“Go back to Colorado.

See the mountains.

Go see John Prine sing while you still can.

That troubadour who sings from his heart.

Hello in there, hello.

Come on home.

Red Rocks Amphitheater in 4 days.

 

Off to our lodging for the next three days.

We spent most of the evening convincing Kepler it would be ok and he would be safe. He insisted he was not going to stay there.

Before the end of the evening, Greg decided we would find alternate arrangements, for the good of us all.

My hero.

Bighorn sheep strolling by.

An entire weather system visible ahead.

Kepler insisting he was NOT going to the top.

A short hike to a mountain lake on the way.

A brief visit to Garden of the Gods the morning we left for home.

A happy, happy hiker in the Garden of the Gods.
