Rain, Hail, and Snow

On the first day of fall snow falls upon the peaks of pikes peak.

Fortunately my foot is to a point where I can start exercising.  Unfortunately the busy season for disc golf is slowing down.  This past weekend on the last day of summer I played a full round of disc golf, minus the holes that were flooded from the rain, at Cottonwood park.  There was only one guy that would have been a perfect opportunity to join except he was talking on the phone and indicated to me to play through.

As you may have heard about all the rain in Colorado, flooding has been a major issue.  Twice I had the experience of driving through the heavy rain where even my wipers could not keep up and it felt like you were driving through a lake.  For example, the following bridge was in excellent condition before the rains.

Despite the rain, this past week has been great.  It feels great to be able to exercise once again!  Until next time, enjoy the following snapshots.

Going to the Wedding

"Packed my things and hit the road
Bought some brand new tires for my Ford
I’m going where the birds sing
I got to get away from everything
Going to the country..."
-The Meters

After four broken drum sticks it's time to leave my drums behind yet again.  It is a sad feeling to leave family, friends, and home behind.  Even with three weeks there were only two evenings that I had not booked to meet a friend or have an event scheduled.  And unfortunately, I was not able to catch up with all of my friends. 

Here are a few snapshots from the past three weeks... documented between an early morning flight giving some wonderful views, a familiar face, and the trademark sunset to end the wedding festivities.

Congrats to the newly weds!

Hopefully, I can catch up on some rest once back in Colorado Springs where my schedule should be less hectic.  Going to the country...again.
