Relocation!

Time for a change of scenery, from Coeur d' Alene, Idaho, to beautiful Trinidad, Colorado. I've not lived year-round in Colorado since September 1977, when I left Colorado Springs for Los Angeles.
I've been following the Colorado Creative Industries for about two years, and have been extremely impressed by the State's Creative Districts - most specifically the CorazondeTrinidad.
So, while I decided last year to relocate, the whole process was sped up by the events which have buffeted lives world-wide in the past four months. 

Trinidad is in the southeast corner of the state, about equidistant from Denver and Albuquerque. It has a rich history, a magnificent downtown Historic District, and is home to the newest (42nd) Colorado State Park - Fisher's Peak.

She is now the bionic dog.... 

       Oh, and I got a new hip in October which, in retrospect, was about five years over due....Now, I'm pain free and much more mobile!
