rocky mountain high
don't you love it when your knitting blends in with the landscape?
tom and i are in durango colorado for two wonderful weeks.
on the needles is anne's twinings stole, fearless fibers merino laceweight in golden olive , the yarn is simply delicious.
we are renting half of a straw bale house just outside of durango in hesperus.
look at the view from our window!
this is the cliff palace. my extreme fear of heights kept me from taking the tour, tom did, and loved it.
i spent the hour knitting :-)
nice spot, eh?
and as i was knitting i met another knitter from outside pittsburg, hi pam!
pam was wearing a lovely sweater from knitter's stash in a gorgeous rust rowan summer tweed.
i did manage to make it down the semi-petrifying walk into the spruce tree house.
definitely worth it! wow! wow! wow!
here is a photo of the trees in mesa verde,
and a photo of the dessimated areas, in 2002 mesa verde had huge forest fires.
on the left of this photo is the cliff where butch cassidy and the sundance kid jumped in the film. it's about 10 miles north of durango on the way to silverton, where i lived 30 years ago.
i couldn't leave you without a few gingersnap photos!
wrapped in her bee blanket,
