We saw a red fox cross Highway 24, the main drag, through Woodland Park, going up mountain. It crossed at the Dinosaur Museum, to the parking lot of a restaurant. We whipped around, went down an alley, to catch up with the bushy tailed animal. We were just in awe, seeing a red fox, downtown.
We attended the Pancake Breakfast and Bazaar at the Senior Center with Jim's mother yesterday morning. The breakfast was very organized, and delicious. The bazaar was fun too on a sunny Saturday morning. Jim has caught a cold, and we're both dealing with altitude adjustment, which feels as if a brick wall is on top of you.
Today we drove around looking at all the log sided cottages and homes, and saw a male mule deer, lounging, in someone's front yard, chewing his cud. You never know what you're going to see here in the mountains!
Somebody told us where to go to see elk near dusk. We went, but didn't see any. We did enjoy all the mountain views though.
The temps have been perfect, warmer than we anticipated for Colorado this time of year. However, all that is changing according to the Weather Channel.
