July 2014:  I have to tell you that when I heard about all the sunny days in Colorado, I had my doubts! I had both good and bad days on my visits (usually snowmobiling) but always heard about how it is all year here.

Did I fully believe it? I’d have to say “no”. That just can’t even be possible, can it? Well, the longer I live here, the endless days of sun are proving me wrong! Back in Minnesota when winter hit, you really did have to settling for the long haul. Cloudy and cold days pretty much took over. I was so used to it, I didn’t even realize what I was missing!

Don’t get me wrong, I loved all the time I had in Minnesota…I grew up there! The summers are something that just can’t be beat when it comes to lake life, water skiing, river boating, and camping on the awesome shores! In my third Colorado summer now though and am figuring it out.

Lakes? I’m learning there are not a ton…but reservoirs, yes! That’s something new, along with new boating and water rules, and driving much farther to get the to the good stuff is something I’m getting used to. Not having spent much time here in the summers I’m learning as I go and have been happy to find that Colorado summers have their own unique greatness! Camping, water fun, rivers, and the awesome MOUNTAINS! I love it!

Hopefully, you all are enjoying the summer as well! Keep it going and I look forward to meeting some of you yet this year!
