By my title you can tell, I'm going to talk about Colorado. Colorado has suffered a lot lately. First, due to fires burning eighty thousand acres of gorgeous forest around the Ft. Collins area, and then 18,000 acres around Colorado Springs. Here are some pictures of the damage around the Springs. This is just a small portion of the damage, and it will take years to rebuild.
The mountains are still beautiful as you'll see by these next pictures.

My time in Colorado was spent with my sister and family. We not only drove to the mountains, enjoyed dinners at home and out at restaurants, we went to Denver to see the new historical museum. This museum will have four floors when it is completed. There are two floors almost completed, but even so it is well worth seeing.
When you walk into the main entrance, there is a map of Colorado on the floor. Two machines can be moved around the map to different locations of Colorado, and you'll learn the history of that spot. It is a fun way for kids and adults to learn history.
I took a few pictures in the museum, but I have to admit that I was so fascinated that I forgot to take photos most of the time. I would love to post what I have but Blogger is being very difficult tonight. You'll just have to take my word that this museum is well worth seeing.
All of you have heard about the tragedy in Aurora, Colorado, and I want to add my sympathy and prayers for the families of the victims. It seems the world has become very cruel.
Have a safe and happy week. I'll see you next Sunday.
Hugs to all of you,
