The spectacular scenery inspired me to try my hand at watercolor painting. My parents had a small watercolor kit that they were generous enough to let me use while I was up there. So I sat out on their deck and did a few tiny little paintings. I found it to be very relaxing and I'm thinking I might pick up a brush now that I'm home. I used to watercolor in high school and college but haven't in quite some time. It was nice.
We ended up traveling home on the 4th of July so we made arrangements to stop in Pueblo and enjoy the fireworks show. The hotel was downtown by the river and we ended up having front row seats in our fifth floor room. It was a lovely end to a memorable trip.
