This was the view from my son's home's front porch for much of the time of our visit.
When Denver has a snowstorm the bright hot sun usually warms the air and melts the snow in a day or two, but the unusually overcast skies and cold air prevented that from happening this time. I thought it added a pretty winter appearance and was Christmas card perfect!
The Colorado State Capital building in Denver. The capitol building was built in the 1890's. In 1908 they used 24 karat gold to plate the dome to commemorate the Colorado's Gold Rush days. The Colorado capitol has the distinction of being the only state capitol situated exactly one mile above sea level -- and there is a step in front of the building which is marked at exactly 5,280 feet high.

Now for my sincere apology. It has been an unusual month for me. In the middle of traveling, dealing with the inconvenience of my foot stress fracture and treatment, and trying to do Christmas shopping and decorating, another event occurred recently which had terrible timing ----my computer decided to go haywire after I updated my browser and virus program. I lost my settings, my favorites files. Eventually I lost all normal operation of almost everything on my computer. It was a total disaster! I now realize how much of my life revolves around my computer and I really felt lost without it.
Luckily Santa Claus rewarded me with a brand new lap top computer for Christmas a little early, and I have been setting it up and learning how to use it the past few days. I apologize that I haven't been responding to e-mails or blog comments as much as I'd like this past few weeks, but I promise to try to catch up as soon as I am able -- please be patient with me just a little longer.
Thanks so much! I hope everyone is having a wonderful holiday season and I look forward to visiting your blogs.
