Gooseneck Thanksgiving

I am thankful for so much in my life. I have the coolest family. A family who is willing to go here for an adventure. To a gooseneck on the Colorado riding along a rough and tumble road.

I am thankful for this vehicle that gets us there safely.

Which also takes us up this road.

For the twenty minutes that took us to get all the way up the switchbacks and out of the canyon.

It was quite the Thanksgiving Jeep trail. It was a grand adventure and for that I feel immense gratitude.

But the best thing of all? I am so thankful the most adventuresome members of my family did not climb on top of this.

Colorado River lunch spot


After lunch we tried to hike to Morning Glory arch but the little one got tired legs about a half mile away. So we scrapped our plans and made our way to Onion Creek which we splashed through 19 times. That's the great thing about Moab - if plans go awry, just look around past the canyon to find another adventure.

Through the Looking Glass Arch

The best of our adventures are the spontaneous ones. Two arches today. The deep cistern at Jailhouse Rock. Some Jeep trails. Plus a great little hike at the Needles Overlook. All in one big loop. We finished out the day with blues and ribs at the Blue Pig. 

I think we've found our vacation rhythm and I learned that the little one likes to climb to heights that make my legs shake and makes my heart beat fast. (!!)

Right after the blizzard


Right when we got into the hot springs pool in glenwood springs, a mini blizzard hit. We stood our ground and waited it out. In. The. Pool. Shielding the little one as best we could.

Once it had passed, of course, I had to take a photo to show that Minnesotans were't going to be scared of a little cold and snow.

On the road

I said I wanted a day where i could just sit and knit. And I got it in the jeep on the road to Nebraska.

New approach


Dave got a new phone so I get his old phone and I thought I would try a new approach to this 365 photo project. I was stopped by this train while rushing to finish errands. Instead of being annoyed I went ahead and clicked a photo. 

A couple of years ago I spotted a film shoot along these very same tracks. Just at the curve there was a dancer, a cellist, and a filmmaker. I intensely regretted not having my camera. And now I have joined the legions of people who will always have a serviceable camera in tow. 

Yah me for joining the 21st century!
