More Colorado Pictures

Last month, we enjoyed a family vacation/music tour in the Rocky Mountain state of Colorado. 

It was a thirteen day tour with 9 concerts--so not only did we delight in hearing a lot of our daughters' music--we also squeezed in some beautiful scenic sites. 

The rivers and streams were flowing with fresh, cold mountain water--

and we drank it in, 

especially when we'd heard that Kansas was enjoying 100 degree temperatures.

We didn't have a lot of free time, but we managed to squeeze in a couple of hikes.

My parents joined us on a couple of the hikes. Here catching their breath and sitting a spell.
The trails were exhilarating

and most delightful when we reached our destination... 

 The waterfalls were breathtaking.

North Clear Creek Falls near Creede, CO

The mountains were majestic and gorgeous.

And the wildflowers were beautiful

and abundant.

There was something really special...and haunting about the aspens as we passed by them.
We had such fun in Colorado and look forward to returning next year!

The Vogts Sisters Colorado Music Tour

This last month, we had a grand time in the Rocky Mountains
when our daughters, The Vogts Sisters, went on a Colorado Music Tour.

The girls before their performance at The Eureka Station in Silverton.
It was almost like a tour of the Silver Circuit, visiting such places as:
Colorado Springs, Silverton, Ouray, Alamosa, Creede, Gunneson, Crested Butte, and Almont.

One of our highlights from the tour - the girls performing at The Wright Opera House in Ouray.

Another highlight from our tour was at Alamosa for their Sundays @ Six Concert in Cole Park.

When the girls performed at Kip's Grill in Creede, I tried out my first Fish Tacos -- and LOVED them!

 My folks joined us on the tour at a couple of places, which made the trip even more fun and memorable.

At Three Rivers Resort, we ran into a camping group from Girard, KS who joined us for one of the girls' performances. What a small world! 

Here at the Broadmoor for their Recital Series at Pauline Chapel in Colorado Springs.

The girls' final performance in Garden City for a High Plains Public Radio Living Room Concert.
The girls were invited back to several places, so we're hoping to schedule another Colorado tour next summer! I'll share more travel pictures from our time in the Rocky Mountains next week!
