AUGUST 2013

September 14, 2013  •  Leave a Comment

August began with a SW TCI Rally in Golden Colorado. We enjoyed visiting with other TCI members and were happy to have our friends, Andy and Faye, join us. Not having a Teton, Andy and Faye were referred to as S.O.B.s. (Some Other Brand.)

Happy Hour is a TCI tradition.

 

During our Teton rally, took a side trip to downtown Denver

Tom, Jeanie and Faye on the 16th Street Mall in LoDo (Lower Downtown Denver).

 

Faye enjoys a cocktail before dinner as Manette hams for the camera.

Had to visit Coors.

 

 

We took a drive to Mt. Evans, at 14,130 ft. on the highest paved road in North America. It was a beautiful ride up, but we had sleet/hail/snow all the way down. Remember this was August.

We had a chance to visit with a high school friend, Stephanie, who lives in the area. Stephanie and her husband, John, joined us for dinner one evening.

Jeanie's high school friend Stepanie and husband John visited while we were in Golden, CO

 

 

We had a few days before we had to be in Amarillo so we stopped in Colorado Springs. We were fortunate to get a site at Cheyenne Mountain State Park. Perched on the side of Cheyenne Mountain (think NORAD), we had spectacular views of the city.

Just imagine the view of Colorado Springs at night. This has to be one of our favorite parks.

Garden of the Gods is beautiful.

All my siblings were able to make it for my Dad's 95th birthday. He's still going strong, but tells us he doesn't have much strength and tires easily. (Don't we all.) Andy and Faye also joined us for the celebration.
