Last week's list...
✔ Sew on a label - it still needs a name, but I will wait for the little guy to arrive for that.
✔ Postcard blocks - As I had anticipated, I didn't get very far with this one while we were away... but I took the time to finish it yesterday as I recouped from our time away and a busy weekend.
This little hummingbird still needs an eye embroidered, but I think he turned out pretty cute!
Our time away was fun, wild and crazy and boy do we have stories to tell! lol.
In the Purgatoire River bed at the bottom of Picket Wire Canyon is a trail of dinosaur tracks. This, in my mind, was the ultimate destination. However, it was a good distance...
And the other sign that was at the trailhead was a bit daunting...
We descended on foot on the first afternoon... thinking confidently that we would be able to make it to the Mission. Ummmm... didn't happen. We did make it to an abandoned homestead.
And were able to scout out the path prior to our trek with the bikes. The next day we were loaded up with lunches, snacks and lots of water.
The sign at the top of the trail suggested we be prepared for flats... We were! Two spare tubes and a patch kit with six "scabs". We'll be good...
We used the pump and ride as far as you can method until we found some shade.
We had made the pact at the on-set, "when one walks, we all walk".
We made the necessary swap out of a tube and we were on our way once again. With a few more "distractions" before we reached the Mission site, we laughed and talked along the way. It was a much needed time of socializing that we all needed.
After taking in the scenery and inspecting some of the gravestones we were on the move again.
A few more "walking sessions" took place because the tires were leaking nearly as fast as they were getting filled, but at long last we arrived at the dinosaur tracks!
