Crossing over from Utah to Colorado on US-40.

Three Poems

Comment: Yes, Biblical imagery from Revelations but that is not the point. The poem speaks well beyond that.

Comment: A walk down memory lane written in gratitude to a fine human being.

Comment: Many as they become older fight change, frankly a useless battle.

An unusual picture to be featured. This was the sign for the motel we stayed at in Steamboat Springs. It is
featured on the Colorado Historical Registry. The very much updated facility was built in the early 1950s.
A fine reasonably priced place to stay.

Vignette: The Move

In mid August our son and family moved to the Denver area. While we were unhappy for ourselves, we were happy for our son and family. Their transition to a new living environment has gone well. Our granddaughters love their new school. We are adjusting to having them more than 9 minutes away. Thus, we will be making the close to 500 mile jaunt to the Denver area as we access our future options. This month's PJ issue pictorially focuses on our first visit in mid September to see Craig and family.


(Picture compliments of the Steamboat Springs City Website.) Founded in 1900, Steamboat Springs is a city with its roots deeply planted in the American West. At 6,700’ in the Rocky Mountains, this northwest Colorado community has the free-flowing Yampa River running right through the heart of city. The transcontinental highway, US-40, passes through the center of the city. One of the larger and oldest ski areas is located within the heart of the city. Its name originates from one of the hot springs located there. There are over 150 hot springs in the area.


This modern facility allows visitors to avail themselves of the healing waters (located across from our motel).



Besides the Rabbit Ears Motel mentioned above, here are a couple more recommendations.

For an incredible Italian fare enjoy dining at Mambos in Steamboat.
Though not inexpensive, the food is delicious. Many enjoy the
hand-tossed pizza. It is best to have reservations.

A delightful, family owned restaurant in Georgetown. 511 Rose
focuses on locally supplied produce. A wonderful place for lunch
and later in the evening local music.

Z'A Bracci Italian Restaurant (Downtown Castle Rock)
The family enjoyed one of the best Italian meals ever. The lasagne
is made from scratch. The cinnamon bites for dessert were enough
to feed the entire group.

Please take a look at the online book and gift pages.


Heading toward Denver, looking northward mainly rolling farmland.


Georgetown, a small mountain village. A popular tourist stop. It has been over 30 year since I visited there.
It has tripled in size, many wanting to live in the mountain village environment.


Alpine Hose Company No. 2 and bell tower built in 1874. Located in downtown Georgetown



Pictured is Castle Rock, the geographical formation from which the upscale community of Castle Rock, CO
(population of 73,158) takes its name. It is the county seat and the most populous municipality of Douglas,
County, Colorado.
