Estes Park, CO – June 20-21, 2018

We woke up to a chilly morning with temperatures in the high 40’s.  Our wooden floors were cold and we had breakfast wearing our winter jackets.  Scott put the heat on for the first time to warm up the camper, and we are happy to report that it works!!  It wasn’t long, however, before the beautiful sun began to do its job.  Colorado’s daily summer temperature can range from low 40’s to mid 80’s in a 24-hour period.  It’s crazy.

Today we met up with Scott’s Uncle Mike and Aunt Marilyn in Arvada, CO, and went to visit Scott’s 105-year-old Paternal Grandmother, Josephine “Joy” Fisher.  The visit was delightful, and she appeared quite happy with our company.  She sat in her chair smiling and blowing kisses to us.  She is truly a treasure.

The next day, Scott dropped me off at Estes Park Recreation Center so I could swim and take a yoga class.  There wasn’t a class on the schedule, but they let me use the studio to practice.  I pretended that I was giving a class to a roomful of students!  It was a great class, and I am still able to to a handstand, Adho Mukha Vrksasana.  When I was done, I walked to Estes Park Lake to kill time waiting for Scott’s return.



Meanwhile, Scott headed for Twin Sisters to hike the 8-mile out and back trail with a 2,400′ elevation gain.  Whew!  That would have really had me puffing.  I am still working on improving my lung capacity in this higher altitude.


Scott took a selfie at the summit of Twin Sisters Peak.  While stopping to eat lunch, he was befriended by a hungry, little creature.  His salty leg was obviously a treat to the little guy.



Later that day, we had dinner with Mama and Papa and said our goodbyes since we are heading south in the morning.  We will be back later in July to spend some more time with them before we fly back east for a couple of weddings.

  • What great photos. Grandma Joy looks terrific, and Marilyn looks wonderful, just like she did the last time I saw her….how is that possible??
    So nice to see your companion on the hike, Scott. Looks like his little feet would tickle on your leg. What fun.
