The overlook at Skyles Lake. On June 6, a grizzly was sighted just below this overlook, sitting on a "kill". We didn't see anything in the local paper, it was on Facebook. Kind of close in for a grizzly, I thought.

|Just beyond Creede is a 17 mile loop mine tour. Darrell wanted to take it, but I felt the truck was too big. We'll come back when we have the smaller car.|
|The local birds have finally discovered the feeder we put up.|
|Darrell and Luna went for a short hike on nearby Coyote Hill, about a mile up the road from our house.|
|Finally getting some pictures hung.|
|The local garden club, Mountain High gardeners, put on a spring expo. We gathered info on high elevation mountain gardening...lots to learn about this!|

As you can see, our Ikea Hemnes dresser fits perfectly into the cubby that we didn't know what to do with. But......now that we look at things, our bed does not go. With anything. Much discussion, weighing all the options, has left us (me) with a new task. I will paint the bed to match the dresser.
Onto the computer I get, and am amazed at the ingenuity of many young women out there who have painted their Ikea furniture. A trip to the hardware store, some experimental paints, and I think I can do this. Stay tuned.

As I write this, a few days after the tree event, most of the snow you see is gone with just a hill in front of the house where it slides off the roof.
Darrell took a quick video of the giant going down.
We now have a sizeable pile of wood mulch next to our house. I had thought it would be good to spread in our landscaping efforts, but it is full of pine needles and not pretty stuff. So much for my idea. We went out and bought a rake.......

Darrell has been assembling furiously since we landed, among his projects an entertainment center, under-counter lights, an 8 drawer dresser (which fit in its spot perfectly), and others too numerous to list.
