    "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.

a weekend of antiquing

1.jpg 2.jpgJust a few weekends ago, my husband and I took yet another road trip to Regina, SK.

7.jpg 8.jpgI have to learn to stop going there. Well, maybe not entirely, but certainly not for anymore overnight stays. To our surprise, the city was hosting a CFL game between their local team, the Saskatchewan Roughriders, and a neighbouring team, the Winnipeg Blue Bombers. Suffice it to say that our downtown hotel looked and sounded like a giant frat house. It was insane. And not in a good way.

3.jpg 5.jpg 4.jpg9.jpg 10.jpgWe brought Holly and Truman with us that weekend. Geoffrey stayed in the vehicle with them while I shopped in the Antique Mall. I spent so much time there, and had every employee helping me to the point that one worker told me that next time I come, he’s going to made me punch in and out. I found many amazing items, and just being in the three-storey brick building alone felt like I was shopping in Brooklyn or some other magnificent, hip city. I am definitely going to be going back there often. Just not to stay the night. ;-)

13.jpg12.jpg11.jpgThe best part of the weekend was the drive back to Saskatoon. What started off as a gloomy weekend, suddenly turned into a comfortably warm day, with fluffy clouds and fresh prairie scents. We stopped off in a small town and grabbed burgers and hot-dogs for ourselves and our dogs. Then we drove to a side road, fed them, and went for a walk. It was nothing short of heaven.

    Despite the football lunatics, it was a pretty nice little weekend. Hope we can squeeze in a few more trips before winter.
