Welcome to my Link-Up for BOMs Away Mondays!
(We'd love to see the BOM you're working on lately.)
|If you're ever in Colorado Springs, you really have to take the Cog Train|
up to Pike's Peak. It is more than worth the ticket price!
|The concept of wearing jeans and jackets in July is COMPLETELY FOREIGN|
to this transplanted Florida family! Back there, this is what we'd wear
for about 3 weeks in our deepest winter days.
|On your way up, you see lots of neat forest trees and vistas like this overlooking reservoirs.|
Only, the phone shots don't do it half justice for the sheer beauty in real life vision.
|After 70 minutes or so, you break over the timber line, where only arctic tundra grows.|
|And you get glimpses of lots of these|
funny little Yellow-Bellied Marmots.
|After about an hour and a half, you arrive at the peak!|
|The Caulkins Family on Pike Peak, with Wyoming in the background distance.|
|Scott loves to scramble to solitary perches. Yeah, it makes me quite nervous at times!|
|If you're cold or want to shop souvenirs, they have a shop up there with food, drinks, gifts, etc.|
|But pretty soon you want to ignore the memorial and the shop and get back to gawking at the amazing views. . .|
|. . . Before you get back on the train and head down that steep, steep track.|
Next time, we'll take the train up and bicycle down!
Haven't had much sewing time since the outing, but I did get all the pieces for the centers sorted out and organized - and nothing was missing! (This is one of two identical twins.)
And after a couple days off from any Dear Jane work, I did get these five blocks finished up this week out of the hand-work tote:
What have you done lately on your BOMs or interval projects? We'd sure love it if you link up here to show it off! :D
