I posted a new profile photo. I am in the photo. Look carefully. See me there in the mirror? This time of year we see the aspens turning. Tourists are nicknamed "Peepers" because they just go to the mountains to view the aspens. Here's another pic I took on a trip across TrailRidge. It should be clickable for a larger version. This was taken just below timberline and we were on Fall River Road, which is a one-lane dirt road in Rocky Mountain National Park that only goes UP (thank goodness) as I wouldn't want to meet anyone coming down*. The photo I used as my profile photo was taken on the western slope, that means it is on the other side of the Continental Divide.
And to make this quilt related: Jan (my LAer) dropped off both quilts yesterday. I am going to wait to bind them until I have the Snowman quilt finished. I'll have pics when they are done. Does anyone have a suggestion on how to take a photo of a 102"x102" quilt? I really don't have a spot anywhere at home that shows this quilt to advantage.
*Factoid: did you know that on that type of road when two cars meet, that it is the descending car that has to back up to a pullout? It is easier/safer to back up going uphill than it is downhill because of the grade.
