Proceeding east to west, one sees irrigated fields give way to ranches, the boundary of the cattle brand inspection regime, and finally Mountain Time.
We were in Colorado last weekend to celebrate my new nephew’s first birthday.
St. Nicholas visited my nephew Christmas morning in the form of his Uncle Mike in Santa drag.
The Front Range may be known for its great weather but it snows just about every time I go there for the holidays.
Yep, another drive across most of Nebraska to visit my folks in Colorado.
It keeps snowing here in Iowa. We got six inches after I flew out Denver last Saturday and then a few more inches on Friday.
I’m back from the holiday weekend in Colorado. I spent a fair amount of time playing with my nearly one-year-old nephew.
Here are photos from my recent trip across the western Great Plains of Nebraska into the Rocky Mountains of Colorado.
I’m done with three days of camping and hiking at Rocky Mountain National Park.
I entered Colorado this morning by the back door, passing through Pawnee National Grassland.
A couple of weeks ago Dad, a.k.a. Colorado Red, wanted to re-enact, or rather re-imagine, the capture of Jesse James.
Last night we ate at a fondue restaurant. I’d never done this before but it was fun and educational. You cook some of the food yourself in oil or broth (I ordered a plate of vegetables, for example).

I managed to get in and out of Denver between blizzards without incident, but I couldn’t get out of Newark on Monday on time because of slightly inclement weather and low visibility.
Everyone’s watching football, which bores the hell out of me, so I’m posting a photo of my nephew Jackson.
My flight to Denver went just fine, but it took about two hours to get my bag.
It’s snowing like damn in Colorado. I just called my brother and they’re totally shut in there, not having to go work, with his loving wife and their newborn baby, and his in-laws who cooked a delicious turkey dinner. Those, poor, unfortunate bastards. Conveniently, this natural disaster is scheduled to end tomorrow at noon. That […]
I got back home at about midnight last night, after a relatively smooth flight.
I’m in Colorado with my family. My dad (a.k.a. Colorado Red) has been spending a lot of time at the horse ranch. He’s even getting into “horse trading” so to speak. We went riding Thursday and today. This time I rode a new, more mellow horse named Belle. I did pretty well for a greenhorn. My […]
