Relocation!

Trinidad Lake State Park


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 Corazon de Trinidad.
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.

Amtrak runs the Southwest Chief from Union Station in LA to Chicago, and Trinidad has long been a stop along the route. It is also located along the I-25 corridor, and abuts the beautiful San Luis Valley, which houses the Great Sand Dunes National Monument.

So, it's worth either a drive or train ride to check it out...

Some thoughts about re-titling this blog come to mind: 
"In Search of Stanley Biber", or
"Playing the Flute in Drop City", or
"A Fox in Trinidad"

A short trip to Montana

Over Memorial Day, Raven and I ran over to Montana for a week....visiting Bonnie Lambert and Marshall Mayer in Helena, and then onto Big Arm and Bigfork around the Flathead Lake, first visiting Sandy and Mike and then Kathy and Stephen.

 The bottom image is Glacier Lake from Apgard. Raven has now been to 6 states, and gone swimming in 2.....

World's Largest Truck

Canadians seem to like big things, especially the father north that you travel. Undoubtedly it is linked to the scale - immense valleys and mountainous hillside filled with trees (and no trails or roads), large lakes and rivers (many of them greenish with the silt of glacial runoff) and clear, bright blue skies.

In Sparwood, BC, we inadvertently found what was billed as the "World's Largest Truck."
Built by General Motors in 1974 to haul coal (retired in 1990) - 260 tons, with tires that are 11 feet in diameter.
