    "Colorado and Wyoming are America’s highest states, averaging 6,800 feet and 6,700 feet above sea level. Utah comes in third at 6,100 feet, New Mexico, Nevada, and Idaho each break 5,000 feet, and the rest of the field is hardly worth mentioning. At 3,400 feet, Montana is only half as high as Colorado, and Alaska, despite having the highest peaks, is even further down the list at 1,900 feet. Colorado has more fourteeners than all the other U.S. states combined, and more than all of Canada too. Colorado’s lowest point (3,315 feet along the Kansas border) is higher than the highest point in twenty other states. Rivers begin here and flow away to all the points of the compass. Colorado receives no rivers from another state (unless you count the Green River’s brief in and out from Utah). Wyoming’s Wind River Range is the only mountain in North America that supplies water to all three master streams of the American West: Missouri, Colorado, and Columbia rivers." Keith Meldahl Happy one week anniversary, you cuties.

Boom Town.

While it may not be the most wondrous museum in Canada, I find it to be so beautiful and so stimulating. Nothing quite satisfies my old soul like walking up and down the streets of Boom Town. I love that we can go into and explore every building that flank the ghostly streets. I also love how we can sit in the old carriages, trains, and street cars that have made up our transportation history. I feel at home in places like these; and I even came away with renovation ideas for our own historic home!

To be able to spend the day in the early 1900s made my little heart soar. I truly had the most amazing time with my husband in Boom Town. I couldn’t have wished for anything more.

Happy December, everyone!
