My Little Slice of Heaven

We have a little cabin in the mountains about an hour and a half drive southwest of Denver, Colorado, and every chance we get Hubby and I go up there to get away.

It's a small A-frame about 700 square feet, just right for a little weekend getaway. It sits on 2 acres, and the best part is it borders national forest so everything to east of us is open land as far as you can see. Here is the gorgeous view from the deck.

It is so quiet and peaceful. You just don't realize how noisy and stressful the city is until you get up here. The only thing you hear is the birds, wind and the occasional airplane flying over head.
We are hoping to build a larger place someday and live up here in the Summer and hopefully Mexico in the winter. This is still a ways off in the future. Right now there is still work, getting the boys thru college, and trying to save up enough money for retirement. Of course I could move up here now and do my thing. I just need to get the internet hooked up and bring all my stuff, there is plenty of room for just me and my things. Yea right, like that's going to happen
any time soon. Oh well a girl can dream can't she? In the mean time I can enjoy this...
Some young male antelope sparring in the meadow. The picture is blurry, I really had to crop it to see them. ( Note to self: get new camera with zoom lens .)
The birds tending to their babies inside the birdhouse...

Beautiful wild flowers...

And waking up to beautiful sunrises like this...
Ahh

Hi Tracy,

What a wonderful little get away!! I can see why you would want to be Snowbirds!! :)

LW Mother lived for years on her husband's ranch in Jefferson now that she is 87 she thought it might be prudent to move to an apartment in Denver, where a stepson lives :)
