Trip to Ouray, Colorado in Mid-July

Strolling up to Box Canyon Falls – my husband and two youngest children.
We wanted to hike up the Box Canyon Falls trail, however, the rain started pouring…and I dislike mud as much as I like nature. We turned around after a short way up the trail. Will definitely come back and hike.

I like taking my family on road trips and vacation at least 3x a year to somewhere. With Covid, it was a challenge. I wanted us to be safe. However, we manage to visit Ouray and it was beautiful.

On the way to Cascade Falls

My two boys and I hiked up to Cascade Falls from our hotel in Matterhorn. It turned out to be a more strenuous hike for us from Dallas and our flat lands. The view was worth it and my sons enjoyed it.

My 18 year old son loves climbing all over this place. I was slightly scared he would get injured, but we went home scot-free.
This is from an overlook at the Black Canyon of the Gunnisson. This is truly one of those places that a picture does not do it any justice. It was spectacular. I just could not get the right picture to show it’s majestic views.
At one of the overlooks on the way to Ouray. Beautiful spot to look at these pile of dirt and rocks.

A Stop at Aztec Ruins

We were on our way to Ouray, Colorado after spending a night in Albuquerque. This place looked interesting, so we stopped. Got rained on and almost skipped it, but we persevere through the weather and cranky Yoash – my baby in sweatshirt.

We saw a snake in one of the chambers. My husband and I thought it was a green rope. Whew. It was a long snake.

A Lunch Date

were we sat and ate our Zoie’s take-out

I have been having trouble sleeping. I know it is because I like watching subtitled Korean and Chinese drama. I also like my work, so I would work remotely for 8 hours, interact with my five children and husband, then after all that, settle down to watch my dramas. I would find myself awake at 5 a.m. when at 8 a.m. I have to start calling clients, opposing counsels, courts, etc.

Today, I found myself nodding off at 1 p.m. I went out of my house to walk around the block because I thought the sun might wake me up. My husband was leaving to mail something. I hitched a ride with with him. That was how we end up with a lunch date at a lovely park 4 miles away.

I sat in the car while my husband got our food

I walked with hubby around the park for a bit. It was very nice to be out and about. I did not have my mask, but we I was far enough away from anyone to worry about it. I saw a lady in bathing suit sitting on a blanket reading a magazine. I saw a half-naked buffed man running and a lady in skin-tight exercise clothing running. I also saw a lady fo size going up and down the stairs for exercise. If the stairs lady keeps it up, she will be fit, indeed. All things being equal.

Now, I am back at my computer, reviewing a file for deposition in two days. The best part is, I am now awake.
