Happy Fall Everyone,
First I want to thank everyone who came to visit my presentation last week for "Le Mysterieux Carnival." I received so many lovely comments, and I really appreciate them.
My husband and I went up to Flagstaff last weekend for two reasons. The first reason was to visit my son, whose attending NAU (Northern Arizona University) for a marketing degree, and the second reason was to see the fall colors. I am very fortunate to live in Arizona (born and raised) as we can live in the valley and experience all the wonders of big city living and wondrous winters. Granted our summers are HOT, but with a little air conditioning or a pool, it's manageable. Another way to escape the heat of the valley is to drive about 2.5 to 3 hours and be up in the cool mountain air. For all of you who think Arizona is only desert, I'm here to tell ya that we get all four seasons here, too.

|Another cool old advertisement.|
|I went down an alley and found this|
weird poster for which I have no
explanation, but I thought it was cool.
|This is the beginning of the ski lift at "Sno-Bowl" which is covered|
by 10-15 feet of snow in the winter and is one of the hottest skiing
|I took tons of pictures while we were going up to the summit|
at 12,000 feet. It was a 45-50 minute ride up.
|At the top I found this really cool dead tree.|
I call them ghost trees.
|This is my son and I at the "almost" top. The lift ends at|
11,500 feet, but there's a hiking path to the top at 12,000 feet,
which I did not attempt.

|As we were leaving the park, I stopped to take pictures|
of the stunning Aspen trees.

So I thought I'd share a few piccy's of our trip, and to prove that I do get out of the house once in a while.....;o) I had so much fun, and the weather was stunning with highs of 70 during the day and lows of 36 at night. The nights were just perfect for this menopausal woman!
Thanks for stopping by.
