Rocky Mountain High


So the heat came back again mid September and Mr. Walker saw his wife wilting away. The marvelous man of few words knew what to do, he simply booked a trip to the Rocky Mountains, Colorado. I happily knitted a hat in three days and packed suitcases.

For seven days we hiked in this beautiful part of the world. Here some snapshots from the family album.





Love and Liefs,

  1. Refreshing in so many ways! What a wonderful chap your Mr Walker is ๐Ÿ™‚ Winter seems to be determined to linger on here …….. I hope we are not stuck in an endless loop of changing season!

  2. That was my first guess!!! I tuped the Rocky Mountains, then I changed my mind and guessed the Laurentians! Lol!! Always go with your first guess, isn’t that what thay say? Well, how wonderful that you had the chance to spend time in the mountains. Sigh… the most beautiful place in the world, if you ask me. Wonderdul pictures. Take care! โ›ฐ

  3. Lovely; what a great way to beat the heat and what a treat those photos are (I’m so awestruck that I’ve been reduced to speaking in rhyme ๐Ÿ˜Š). Love to you and Mr Walker from all at the Homestead x

  4. What a guy! It does sound like the perfect trip for escaping the heat and everyday life in Ohio. All the scenery is exotic and so beautiful. I gasped out loud at the photo of the full moon but, really, all the photos are wonderful!

  5. Looks to me like you have the perfect Mr. If someone booked a trip like that for me I’d think I was in heaven. You captured the scenery so clearly and beautifully. I would never want to leave. The photos are stunning!!! I’m sure any writing will go much better now. ๐Ÿ™‚ Our weather in the Pacific NW is all off. The rains have come but it is way too warm for this time of year. I’m sure some of those photos will find their way to sketches.

    • Mr. Walker is indeed a fine fellow ;o) I really love this place of the world and it was wonderful to beat the heat indeed. The west coast of America is the travel plans for 2018…I know it is far ahead but we are going with friends from Europe so that needs planning. Any tips???

      • How far down the coast are you going and how many days do you have? I’m partial to the Pacific NW. California has some pretty spots but… I’ll give it some thought. I’m not much on seeing the sights. I kind of just live somewhere and don’t get around enough unless someone has time to drive.

  6. Oh, Mr. Walker is a good one. The Rockies are so lovely in the fall, I hope you caught some of the aspens in their full yellow glory. That first photo of the elk is amazing and the scrub jay is pretty sweet too.

  7. You’ve gotten wonderful photo’s of so many critters. It’s almost like they all said, “Johanna’s here, Johanna’s here!” and came out to greet you. LOL. The chubby guys…woodchucks maybe? I think they’re a riot xo B
