Sophie went with us. She is such a great canine traveler. We made a rest stop for her before entering the town (pics to the left) and while walking about, she protected us from the wooden carvings of cowboys. Grrrrrrr she is so frightening!
For awhile she wore some mardi gras beads out of season to see if she could be a fashion leader but I don't think it caught on.
Reading the prior postings to this blog, you have probably gotten the gist that we are ready for Spring and Summer. So the following pictures do not make sense. But to get to Winthrop, we must go over the pass on hwy 20. This is what we found:
The bathrooms couldn't be entered without a bit of shoveling. It was amazing as we drove along this route. The waterfalls between snow covered rock formations, and even the snowplows made interesting patterns as seen below.
Also as we were intently watching the scenery
Larry and Betty saw a bike along the side of the road that had been there since morning. This was not a hiking area and not somewhere someone would consider to store their bike. It was broke but we picked it up and put it in the trunk (Obviously it would not fit entirely inside.)of the red car and proceeded to freeze the remainder of the trip since the hatch was open.
But this was a "Thia sized bike"!!!
And Larry could fix it!! He took it out at the next rest stop and found it was not in bad shape. I can touch the pedals while on the seat!!!! Its blue and beautiful and it feels like Christmas. (See Santa below without the red outfit and beard)
I just need a little bell and basket. Maybe put some clothes pins with playing cards on the spokes!!!!!!! Geeeeeeeee. Woooooooo Hooooooooo! Vrooooom Vrooooooooooom. I wonder if it will peal or wheelie in all 15 gears! Where are my goggles and helmet! lol Larry says the dingaling will be in the seat. By the way, he rode it first.
In other news - we still are not sure when our golfer from the south along with fade and the bird will be joining us. We had a weekend of the neighbors returning to their homesteads and there was plenty of activity. It was really great seeing this group again. But even last night, met someone new to the resort and had a nice visit.
Today is sunny and Betty and I will be going to town. We all hope all of you are well and that you are having a super day. Till next time.
