All us vacationers made the haj to South Park yesterday. No, not that South Park. The South Park that is an awesome vista consisting of an immense valley in the interior of the Colorado Rockies, surrounded by huge mountain peaks. It's the sort of place that should still having living dinosaurs in it.
We had a loverly leisurely walk with the kidlets on a nature hike trail and looked for various plants and critters. We ate donuts. We cruised past the Rocky Mountain Dinosaur Resource Center (which we plan to visit today with our guys). We experienced the pleasures of mild hypoxia (I come from the land of oxygen-thick air right at sea level). And we sat out on the patio in the cool of the evening and watched the full moon rise. God is good.
Two more days and then I give a talk for Siena and the Diocese on the Care and Feeding of the Lay Catholic Apostle. Three more days and we have our soiree on Discipleship and Community. Looking forward to meeting all y'all! Till then, our boys have more fossils to check out (and I don't mean me).
