Inspirational Thursday-Mountain ViewsIn: colorado, denver, facts September 05, 2013 By: Jemma@athomewithjemma
This is the time of the year that we have had it with Texas, you know how folks that
live in the cold climates go South for the Winter?
Well, when you live in North Texas you want to leave the state during the months of
July through September, and going West is very desirable.
It is just plain, hot and dry here and not nearly enough to do even if you do have a
swimming pool. Cabin fever sets in and we all know that is not a good thing.
So, my friends we are leaving for Denver Colorado.
I have done some research about this beautiful state, as well as the mile high city
and I am sharing these facts with you today.
I love the mountains, the fresh mountain air and oh the wonderfully
cool nights which make for the best of rests.
