Summer's Busy

Yes, I'm still here. I've been so busy that I can't keep up with the home front, but that's good. A little dust around the house doesn't hurt anyone, lol. My family and I have been camping lots this summer. My parents are camp hosts this summer here in Colorado and they have room for us to pitch our tent and we do!!! They are right by a lake and it's gorgeous. Nothing like waking up in the morning and drinking your coffee by the lake, ahhhhhhh.

We have also been hiking lots this summer. My favorite trail is Waldo Canyon. It's 6.2 miles and a 1,000 foot gain in altitude. Once you get in the back part of the canyon it's breathtaking (in more ways then one, lol). The back loop is hard and my youngest son hates it, but I love the exercise and being out in nature.

Yes, I have been riding this summer. All of June, as you read, found me riding to summer school every day. I also rode in a couple of organized rides that I need to still post. I rode in the annual "Fallen Biker" rally, Bikers for Babies, and Fallen Officer's rally. If the weather holds, my hubby and I will be riding up into the mountains this weekend after he gets off work and after I go to my monthly Mountain Shadow Riders meeting. We were just up there camping this last weekend, but by cage.

So, when things settle down I will start to tell the tales of my summer adventures. Wishing you loads of summer adventures,

Biker Betty :)

The camping and hiking sound wonderful. Yes it's nice to wake up by a lake!

After summer school closed, my son and I went camping and hiking with a couple relatives. He was bored at first, but eventually got into it.

I posted pictures.

Now it's back to cleaning house and doing laundry!

Hi Delrond, Thanks..I took a quick peak at your blog and enjoyed reading about vespas. I will visit again when I get more time.

Hi Dawn, I don't envy you the heat or humidity of Florida. I will live in dry Colorado anyday. We lived in Maryland for 8 years, while in the Air Force, and hated that east coast humidity. I totally understand why you wouldn't want to get out in that heat.

Hi Sharon Lynne, I went over and read about your camping trip. If anyone gets a chance, you have got to go over and see the photos. Be sure to click on the link to Little Lakes Valley. WOW!! I would love to go there some day.

I also see in a previous post that you got out on your dirt bikes for a great day of riding. Loved reading about it and the pics are awesome.
