High Plains Skywatch


This past week we ventured to Colorado Springs from Tulsa for our great nephew’s high school graduation. We had quite the adventure going up, wind, rain, snow. Yep snow in May!!


Yep, snow, luckily it was very slushy and not icy and Heather’s new car has all wheel drive with a “snow mode.” I love snow mode but not snow.


Heather found this cool little Casita for us to stay in an older part of Colorado Springs. Ultra cool and snug in the freezing May weather. It was adobe and I love the look of snow and adobe.


We went to my sister Ellen’s place out in the plains east of town. Here is son Logan out in the pasture.


Ellen is an artist and she showed off her new “She Shed” where she does her painting.


And we got to see her horses.


And I found my BIL Irvin’s geocache out in front of their house.


The trip home had some great skies that looked threatening but we didn’t have the rain and snow that we had going out. While we were gone Tulsa had some pretty bad flooding that is continuing. Our home is high and dry I can report.
