A hawk, a farm, and the Rocky Mountains

Somewhere in the Erie/Longmont area yesterday (November 2, 2020), I caught this photo of a hawk flying along a farm, with the Rocky Mountains in the background. As you can see, the sky was perfectly clear yesterday, which is a nice change after all of the fires this summer.

A child, a dog, and a mask

I saw this statue of a child, a dog, and a mask at the Foothills Hospital (Boulder Community Hospital) in Boulder, Colorado on October 28, 2020.

The flatirons, Boulder, Colorado

If you ever visit the Boulder, Colorado area you’ll hear of the “flatirons.” Many stores and businesses are named after them. This is them.

Registered for gas and electric yesterday

Registered for gas and electric yesterday in the new town I’ll be living in, about 60 miles south of Wyoming.

Reminded me of moving to the cabin in Talkeetna and trying to figure out where I had to register for everything then. (Turned out it was all an hour south with the MEA and MTA in Wasilla and Palmer.)

COVID-19 cases are sharply on the rise in Colorado

Sadly, cases of COVID-19 are sharply on the rise in Colorado. I know that MANY people at my apartment complex don’t wear masks as they walk around, swim in the pool, and exercise, so this isn’t a huge surprise.

Up to date data about COVID-19 in Colorado can be found at this page.

Where to live?

Kind of a weird situation: I’ve been thinking about moving lately, and that led to the thought that if a doctor told me I only had six months left to live, I know where I would live. But I generally like a lot of things about Colorado, so I live here. Hmm...

The neigh-bors

The front of my current apartment complex in Broomfield, Colorado faces the Rocky Mountains, and the back-right portion of the complex has these neigh-bors.

June 12, 2020 sunset, Broomfield, Colorado

Last night I went up on the roof of the garage at sunset time and ended up with this nice photo. I didn’t have batteries charged for my good camera, so I shot this one with my iPhone.

Basketball on the roof

The apartment complex where I currently live in Colorado has a basketball goal on the roof of the garage. That doesn’t sound too bad, but the roof is six stories up. That’s just a wee bit intimidating, so for now I’m shooting from inside twenty feet. :)
