Celoebrating Buzz's 70th Birthday with new friends

I have had a really hard time downloading photos, so here are just a few that made it. If I can't get them to download better I will change sites as it is becoming very frustrating - especially since we are here in this beautiful part of the country.

Just a couple of quick lines and then I will try to get some more pictures loaded. We are working 3 and a half days a week (28 hours total), and really enjoying the work, our time off, and the people here. We eat in a communal dining hall (much like at college) and it is really fun to share that time with the other volunteers.

Our time off has been spent touring the area. We have been over to Ft. Collins to the New Belgium Brewery - it just so happened that we went on the day the US was playing Belgium in the World Cup which made it rather exciting. Another day we tried Hot Sulphur Springs where the 19 hot tubs range in temperature from 98 to 120. Our limit was about 105, but it was enjoyable and relaxing. We visited the Denver Zoo, Red Rock Amphitheater, and the Rollins Pass which is the route the train took over the mountains before the Moffat Tunnel was built. Not a road I would recommend for relaxing travel, but the view from the top was awesome.

We are leaving in a couple of days to fly back to Lake George for our annual family reunion, but have decided to come back and stay here until after Labor Day. After that, we will be on our way. We're just not too sure just where at this point.
