Savor Saturday at Ridgway State Park

Dear Maia and Isaac,

Today was a beautiful fall day here.  It has been cold with some rain for the last couple of weeks, so I have not had a Saturday to savor since the trip to see the goats.  So, today I took my dogs to get Halloween clothes and then we went on a hike at Ridgway State Park.  The sunshine felt so good.

I took some portraits of my dogs, too – they are so goofy.

Maizzy, Sazi and Kachina.


We saw a mule deer – I love their ears.  Hiking is so much better than Facebook!

The Ridgway Reservoir is way too low, though.  It makes me very sad to see it shrinking.  I am posting some pictures from the overlook from different times. The drought really scares me.  I am afraid that you two will live in a world that is changing and water is harder to find.

Ridgway Reservoir today.

Do you remember the day we went to the Reservoir?

Maia and Isaac at Ridgway Reservoir – your last trip to my house, I think.

I think the next couple of weekends I will be gathering up my leaves – so I don’t know when the next Savor Saturday will be.  I am sure it won’t be too long.  I’ll try to post a photo of my dogs in their new shirts on Halloween, though!

Love, Grandma Hartt
