Happy Trails!

Day One: August 8th


We left Cordell, Ok. at 3:30 am this morning to drive to Colorado.  When we left Oklahoma it was already 80 degrees and humid.  We finally arrive in Colorado to Lost Trail Ranch this evening at about 6:00 pm.  We unpacked and had a wonderful dinner with an unbelievable view from the dining table.  So far so good.  Loving the beautiful scenery God has layed out for us here.  It is breathtaking.   We were all really tired by bedtime from the long days travel.   As we lay down to sleep you can't imagine how quiet and still it is.  It was so quiet Chris could hardly sleep!IMG_1980


Day Two:  August 9th

We got up early this morning to freezing temperatures.  It was 30 degrees on our front porch and not much warmer in the cabin until Chris and Tina got the stove going with a big fire.  Waking up to such cold weather made me question the shorts I packed.  I don't think I'll be needing them now.  So thankful for the firewood the caretakers have left for us to use.   As we sat eating our breakfast, I was thinking about how grateful for the opportunity we've been given this week.   This is the view from our front porch.  It is indescribable!  There aren't words to express the beauty of this place. 



After breakfast the guys started gearing up to head out on the horses for the day.  They left about 10 am and were gone for about 5 hours.  While they were gone the kids and I walked down the pasture to see the Rio Grande river that lies just below the mountains. The water is crystal clear.

Oh the mountains! The mountains and the beach are good for the soul! Nothing quite like that crisp mountain air! "The mountains declare the glory of His handiwork!" (A scripture I know but not sure where may according to me! LOL) Have a great time!
