How I spent my summer Blog Hop

I might be a senior kitty but as the saying goes a rolling kitty stone gathers no moss 
I had a rolling good time this summer in spite of the 3H's, hot, hazy humid.

I spent my virtual summer vacation in Colorado and Utah, June 20-26


I learned how to climb red rocks at the Garden of the Gods in Colorado Springs, CO

While in Arches Nat'l Park I....
Not my best decision...getting down was hairy.



One of my favorite my favorite places was the Red Cliff Lodge in Moab, UT
They had the most gorgeous sunrises over the Colorado River
I sat on the fence behind my room to take them in every morning


 I took  jet boat ride on the Colorado River....it was fast as greased lightning too
I got to wear a pirate hat for my Jet Boat Portrait

I was please as purple punch to ride the Durango and Silverton Steam Locomotive
I even got to visit the engineer and wear his hat.



It was indeed an honor to be Junior Ranger for the Day at Grand Mesa National
Forest.  I had to read all the rules from the handbook. I was
given all kinds of stuff to take in my back sack
A whistle was for scaring the scat out of the bears
Binoculars to look for bears so I'd know when to blow my whistle
A bandaid for booboos I might get when I ran from bears
A camera to take a selfie with a bear. YIKES
Thank goodness I saw no bears

A magnifying glass to look for buttie pillars for my Princess Leah



My last day I decided to camp atop Wilson's Arch in Arches National Park.
I arrived late afternoon and Oh my word was it ever H O T up there too.
I did see some spectacular sights through my biNOCulars
Even the devil himself was melting...see pitchfork and a red hand

All in all it was a fine vacation and I saw a lot a very beautiful sights
I have lots and lots of memories and images stored in my itty bitty kitty brain
