God loves Color 

Not all tree’s are light green. Not all tree’s are dark green. They are dark, light, and everything in between. That is what God’s creation is all about 😀 He loves different color in his creation and different color of people ❤

Vallecito Lake

Beautiful breathtaking views! It is located 20 miles north-east of Durango Colorado.

In 2002 over 70,000 acres were burned near the city of Durango. Over 4,000 firefighters helped. Fourteen 18 feet tall carvings were made to help tourism to Vallecito Lake.

We stayed at Lone Wolf Cabins. A great place to enjoy a slower pace of life and get some much needed R&R!! So amazing!!

Big Spring Cabins, Van Buren, Mo.

Wow!  No TV or Internet.

 So quiet,  that we could hear the leaves fall on the ground.

The  current river was clear.

Big Spring Cabins were built in the 1930’s.  A fire place is inside, and a fire pit is outside.

We grilled dinner outside, and roasted marshmallows inside.

They have no central heat.  So glad we brought an electric heater! 🙂

Sad to say that, the cabins will be closed from 2015-2018.   For renovation safety codes.

In the fall, the colors  are changing. The water is emerald green!

The current river is feed by underground springs. The water is clear, and continually moving.  Most people canoe or raft down the river.

Let your hair down and kick your shoes off!! Listen to this country song! I adore it!

Am I turning into a country girl yet?  It is a real possibility!  I sure am looking like one!

This is at Cuvier River State Park.   I have lived in the big city of Dallas and then Tulsa.   It has been a real culture shock  to move to a small town, but I am loving this peaceful country life!!  I have not caught a fish yet, but I don’t care because I am enjoying the fresh air, peaceful surroundings,  and scenery!  Wow, what beautiful light blue sky!! 🙂
