Quite frankly this has been an exhausting process but I am happy to report, Isak will be reconstructed according to the Summit Daily.  The two locations in Breckenridge that are being considered are Illinois Trail behind the Breckenridge Ice Arena or the River Trail near Breckenridge Recreation Center.  No definitive date for the rebuild has been set, but for all of you who didn't have a chance to view Isak, your luck has changed!!

No time was wasted, I predicted his removal would be soon, but Isak the Troll is officially deconstructed. πŸ˜₯
I haven't read any confirmation of whether he will be moved to a new location.  This is as good of a time as any to remind people to #leavenotrace and to #berespectful
I want to visit and see nice things.  The Troll was quite the sight.  Even if you aren't an art lover, it was easy to fall in love with Isak.  He had crazy twig hair, enormous features, sweet eyes, and finger and toenails.

R.I.P. Isak Heartstone.  According to various news sources the Breckenridge council has voted for the Troll to be taken down.  Originally constructed for a summer Art Show by Danish artist Thomas Dambo, it became a huge success.  However, with its proximity to a nearby neighborhood it has caused quite the controversy.  The council has voted to remove the Troll because of winter safety concerns on the trail to the Troll.  They have not given a definitive date when the Troll will be removed, but my guess is soon, because ski season is starting. If you want to read more about the Troll removal check out the Summit Daily or the Denver Post.

Most people think of the Rocky Mountains when they think of Colorado.  But the landscape in Colorado is so diverse.  This is Western Colorado, specifically the Gunnison River.  I love that a train (almost) always goes by when we are on this trail.

This is Toula.  We adopted her a month ago from CLAWS, here in Grand Junction.  Her story--she is 6 years old, she was relinquished because her owner went to assisted living.  Can you believe she waited for a new home for 11 weeks?  My husband and I knew we would get another cat.  Our cat passed away quite a few years ago at the age of 17 1/2. We wanted to adopt an older cat.  She is the most lovable cat and her purr is as loud as a mack truck.  When I saw Toula, I was immediately smitten. 🐱🐱❀❀

When you type, write, or spell desert, do you ever have to think twice about whether it needs another "s"? I do--every. single. time.  I guess I always have dessert on my mindπŸŽ‚πŸ˜‚

Sometimes I am a little late in finding the "pot of gold" locations to photograph.  But now that I have discovered Connected Lakes here in Grand Junction,  I can't get enough of this location. 😍
🧑Lakes are a given, (seeing that it is called Connected LakesπŸ˜‰)
🧑the sunsets are phenomenal
🧑the reflection off of the lakes is jaw dropping
🧑the Cottonwood trees that engulf the park are huge and their golden yellow leaves this fall have been vibrant
πŸŽ„πŸŽ„I finally took our photo for our Christmas cards.  I took photos up on the Mesa and at Connected Lakes.  The photo I finally decided on for our cards was the one from Connected Lakes, I couldn't resist the beautiful Cottonwood trees!
**Connected Lakes is part of the James M. Robb Colorado River State Park**

I checked out a book from the library a few days ago.  I am a huge fan of the library.  It is amazing to me that you can borrow a book and they trust you enough to bring it back.  Unfortunately,  I am no longer an avid reader but I do go through spells where I get inspired to read.  That is why I love the library.  I can go online and reserve my copy, I can even call the library and they will track down a book for me.  I hope I finish my book, because I put a few other titles on hold.  In all honesty,  ever since leaving my graduate work, I have very little desire to read for pleasure.  When I hear the words homework or reading assignment, I am out!  Wish me luck with this book.  BTW, it is an easy reading novel based outside of Durango,Colorado called "The Patchwork Bride" by Sandra Dallas.

This is along a trail here in Western Colorado.  Our timing was just right.  This view was actually behind us.  I love the tree, because you could see the beautiful saturation of colors from the setting sun through its branches.  This moment was so fleeting, if I wouldn't have turned around I would have missed it. .

Still fall in Grand Junction.  In the distance the Bookcliffs to the left, Mt. Garfield center, and to the right the Grand Mesa.  Behind me is the Colorado National Monument.  This is the Grand Valley, completely surrounded by beauty!

We were here last night when the snow was coming down, and drove back up tonight to see this stunning display of beauty.  I could sit here all day and take pictures of this exact spot.  You have no idea how many photos I have of this exact location (it's a lotπŸ˜‰). Do you have a favorite place to photograph?

If you have driven along I-70 and passed the Grand Junction exits, you probably did just that, passed by.  If you want to really see and experience Grand Junction, you definitely have to exit the freeway and drive into town.  Grand Junction is the largest city on the Western Slope.  People from all over the western part of the state come here to shop, go to the doctor, and run all kinds of errands.  Because we are only 30 miles from the Utah border, folks in Moab drive to Grand Junction for the same reasons.  Also, compared to other parts of the state Grand Junction real estate is still affordable. One other thing, it is an outdoor paradise.  We don't have to drive far to enjoy the outdoors.  We are surrounded by the Bookcliffs, Mt. Garfield,  the Grand Mesa, and the Colorado National Monument. Grand Junction is a hidden gem!
