Hiking in Colorado..




















So here are some pics we took from our hike yesterday in Colorado-not 20 miles from our cabin. After 10 years, we never knew this lake existed! It was a beautiful day and we got a good training hike in for Peru (Inca Trail hike).

The cabin looks alot better than the last time we were here. Post flood, it looks like all the work is done. We have new flooring, new carpet downstairs, new well pump. Now all we need is a new dishwasher (frozen water broke it-10 years old anyway), new heater, new washer and dryer (old). We are sure hoping insurance company will pay for alot of this. It went down like this: the heater broke, the well pipe froze, the well pump kept trying to pump and it burned out. In the meantime, the frozen pipe caused the inside pipe to burst and poof!-you have a flood! At any rate, the heating guy said we were "lucky" nothing worse happened. ??? Well, I the cabin could have burned down I guess! So the water is back, the heater will be replaced before the winter and we will have new appliances..Not all bad.. Anyway the hike was peaceful and calming..
