Susan’s Sidetracks on Her Way to the Mountains
Directions, they are not everyone’s cup of tea; that’s my philosophy! If you’ve listened over the years you probably know that every so often I get a little lost at times; it’s that whole getting old and becoming senile syndrome. At least that’s what I say, but other people tell me that it’s nothing new and I’ve been a little dazed and confused for years. I get more than just a little flack from everyone here at the station for everything from my parking skills to always being lost, thus they have inspired me to start taking pictures during my adventures. When I find myself in a conundrum I just send them a photo to a friend and say HELP! They are nice enough to lend a hand but honestly I think they are getting a little tired of the constant nagging so I’m asking for your backup. Remember that old song by The Police, Sending Out An SOS, well yeah it’s pretty much my theme song.
Each week I’m going to put up a picture from one of my wanderings to see if you can identify where in the heck I am at! Just put your guesses in the facebook comments section below and next week I’ll reveal the location I found myself in along with another clue to where I am lost.
This Week’s Clues
Maybe it’s the lure of the color in the mountains or the change of season but I’ve just loved driving and looking and this week I made a check off my bucket list. This gorgeous area is near where I lived in the 90’s when I was married to old ‘number 2′. For all the times I wondered what IS that totem pole deal, I never wandered over to the neighbors to ask. Maybe it was the 5 strands of barb wire or the no trespassing notice or that I was in too much of a hurry. I finally did get the scoop on this potential pile of toothpicks and it’s story unfolded. It’s on it’s last leg and in dire need of repair. People have mended it with wire and the City of Loveland gave it a new backbone of sorts years ago. Do you know where I am?
