Air Force WIngs!

 Over the next 2 months we will attend 4 graduations....Andrea will get her Bachelors for U of Colorado , Pueblo on May 7th....Katelin will graduate from U of Colorado, Colorado Springs on May 20th and Matt from U of Phoenix on June 18th....and the first one we attended on April 8th....Charlie's graduation from Pilot School at the Air Force base in Columbus, MS.
 This day was made for Charlie! A culmination of a childhood dream and years of academic focus to not only be selected to attend the Air force Academy in Colorado Springs, but to earn a spot to become an Air Force Aviator!
Katelin is super proud of her future husband!

Katelin pinning Charlie with HIS WINGS!
This is the jet Charlie trained in

 This is the one he will fly....a C5 Galaxy....the military's largest aircraft.....
6 stories high and a football field long. It has 28 wheels!
 Charlie and Katelin will be stationed at Travis AFB, in California....right next to Napa Valley and San Francisco!  Can you say..."We are coming to visit!"
We are proud of both Charlie and Katelin!


Charlie made a us a wall sized plaque to show his appreciation for sponsoring him from the Academy....we were a part of his dream!

FULL METAL CARNAGE

If you recall, Matt and I made the run over Red Cone Pass and were heading up Radical Hill when we broke an axle....by the time we limped down the mountain, the damage had been done....not only had we broke the axle but we shredded the gears! Not good!

Matt's response...."glad I wasn't driving!"

Anyway....New Axles...Dana 44's with ARB Air Lockers and 4.88 gears!

If it breaks again...it won't be because of the axles!!!

Telluride...I tell you there is no other place like it!

Every year for the past 5 we have spent out leaf peeping out in Western Colorado outside of  Telluride at  Trout Lake.
and every year we have missed the peak colors by 1 to 2 weeks....either too early or too late.
This year... we were on the money! Perfect!
The autumn colors of Colorado....God sure can paint!! Trout Lake canvas!
This is not the house we stayed in but the colors framed the house for a great shot!
Gigi is a goof off!
Good friends from our neighborhood. Rich, Bruce, Marti and Gigi!
Telluride!
Brilliant colors!
Part of the Palmer Lake Hiking Club!

The Gigi Sherpa...leading the pack!
Camera standoff with Rich....cameras at 30 paces!

See how I blend into nature....
