What I’ve been up to:

I had a wonderful time camping this week and got home on Friday afternoon. We went into Durango, Colorado, and did the river walk along the Animas river that runs through town

Then we went to Mesa Verde National Park which features one of the largest preserved alcove settlements. We signed up for a ranger led tour of the site and it was just amazing. Both how complex the site is and how well preserved it was.

As expected, I did not get much read this past week, but I have a quiet week ahead, so hopefully, I’ll make up for it. These were both good books, and my favorite was Well, That Was Unexpected by Jesse Q. Sutanto.

  1. I’ve always wanted to go to Cliff Palace and the rest of your photos are absolutely stunning. Happy Endings at Mermaid Point looks fun. Have a wonderful week!

  2. The Animas River is beautiful and the Cliff Palace looks amazing! It looks like you had a wonderful vacation! I want to read the Sarah Hogle at some point. I enjoyed her last book.

  3. It’s fun to hear about your adventures. Do you go camping in the winter, too? I ask because one of my siblings will go camping no matter how hot or cold it is outside. He adores the outdoors in all seasons.

    The Cliff Palace looks amazing. Wow, it’s preserved well. I wish the people who built it could see just how well it’s held up.

  4. Beautiful pics, Wendy. That Alcove Settlement is amazing. I watched the first episode of Rings of Power so far and need to get caught up. Have a great week!

  5. I also watched all 4 episodes of Power of Rings, I have to say I haven’t read books before Hobbit and LOTR so I find this very inetresting.

  6. I love your photos. Cliff Palace looks great. My office staff went on a surprise trip to Denver back in 2020. We all had fun but our favorite sites were north of Denver. Particularly a lovely muffin restaurant, The Huckleberry Bakery, and Tea Room.

    Looks like you have some fun reading going on. Have a good week and Happy Reading!

  7. Your pictures are wonderful, Wendy. That alcove settlement looks awesome. Something I would love to see. The cover for Well, That Was Unexpected didn’t appeal to me at all, but it is great that you enjoyed the book. Have a wonderful, relaxing, upcoming week.

  8. That preserved Alcove Settlement is so cool! I’ve never seen anything like that before. All the pictures are gorgeous😍. So glad you had a good time!

    • Thank you, Tessa! There are quite a few alcove settlements in the Southwest, but none are as large or as well preserved as this one

  9. I’m glad you had a great time camping. Durango looks lovely. I’ve always wanted to go to Mesa Verde, but I’ve never had the chance. I love your pictures! I hope you have a great week!

  10. I love that river pic! And I’ve been enjoying Lord of the Rings too. Pretty well done show!

    Hope you have a nice week!

    • Mesa Verde is such an interesting park, I hope you get a chance to go there soon. Well, That Was Unexpected was a hoot! I hope you enjoy it too.

  11. I really want to go to Mesa Verde! If all goes well, we’re actually driving out to Colorado next week, but we won’t go that far west. Hopefully one day though. Beautiful photos!

  12. Glad you had a nice camping trip, the pictures are beautiful! Thank you for sharing. Well, That Was Unexpected looks good. I’m looking forward to your thoughts on The Frederick Sisters Are Living the Dream, I’ll be reading that soon. Enjoy your books this week.
