Mt. Evans and our visit with Duane and Linda

We arrived at Castlerock Colorado on September 3rd. We went to an art show in Estes with Duane and Linda. Then they took us up to Mt. Evans which is 14,220 elevation highest paved road in the U.S.A. Half way up we saw some goats there is a picture of them in the collage. The picture with little people in it is Duane and Linda on top of Mt. Evans. It was a wonderful day. It was a sunny day. If Duane didn't have car trouble it would have been a perfect day.

Today we are headed to The Great Sand Dunes National Preserve.

Coaches at the Rally

There were 1800 Motorhomes at this rally.

First Day of the Rally

We signed students up on Wednesday for painting classes. Lorraine St. Louis helped me because John had to attend the Governing Board Meeting. We had the class in the afternoon with 31 people. When I got home I was very tired. Signing people up for classes requires us to be there at 6:45 a.m. Then my class was at 1:30 to 4;30 the same day.

Carol Johnson is one of the other Seminar Presenters. She teaches Fusion Jewelry using a kiln.

Friends We Met For Lunch

Before the rally started we met Chris and Pam for lunch in Whitewater, Wisconsin. It was great seeing them. John, Lorraine, and myself drove from Madison.

Now, we need to get ready to teach in Madison.

Traveling the Upper Peninsula of Michigan

This is the third week John and myself have traveled the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. It has been a wounderful tour. We enjoyed good weather while seeing many waterfalls and lighthouses. This is a beautiful area and I am hapy that John and I were able to njoy it. Lake Superior is awesome.

While we were parked in Houghton we took a trip to Copper Harbour and it had some scenes that we had not seen in other parts of the U.P. We saw a snow gauge which was interesting I have put it in the collage.

We are headed for Ontonagon where plan on seeing more sights. This is our last stop in the U.P. Next week we go to Wisconsin.
