From the Tiger Run Campground - lots of WHITE!
Spring in CO brought snow to Breckenridge and our property in Fairplay - 35 degrees - now I know why we didn't move there! We ended out trip in Colorado with visits to my cousin, Lionel & his wife, Jan in Colorado Springs and my nephew, Eric & his wife, Kamrin Boulder, CO. We had great visits, delicious food and wine, but cool weather! Snowed on the way to Rocky Mtn. Park, so we turned around and found a fruit stand and bought a cherry pie to share with everyone for dessert instead! Found a great brewpub - Southern Sun Brewery close to Eric's for great happy hour -- beer and homecut fries - a heaping basket for $1.75! Had delicious salmon and chicken done on the green egg with a great salad (something we missed camping!) at Eric and Kamrin's. We had pheasant wrapped in bacon with strawberry port sauce and delicious brown rice which Lionel & Jan made us - we found some good wines to accompany the great meals! And cherry pie! Our trip across the country took 3 days across Kansas, Missouri, etc. We were lucky to have little rain ahead of the bad tornados that happened

Of course they are waiting for their treats!
the next day! And we came home to beautiful flowers and long grass - lots of rain when we were gone! Ernie was happy to spend a few days in larger quarters and played with Scout, Daisy, Moochie, and Daniel. He's happy to be home and run around the house - before he just jumped from the couch to the bed to the dinette in circles! That's is until the next "Happy Trails" which may be this fall! SES
