Welcome to our web site. We've put together this site to update our friends and relatives with news about us and to post pictures of our adventures as we live our dream in the mountains of Colorado. We've also included special features like a web cam looking out our front window and a weather station to display current weather conditions at our house.
If you have any comments or questions, please contact either Curtis or Ann through the "Contact Us" page.
More of Angel's Excellent Adventures - Iceland
Angel has made another stop on her Excellent Adventures-this time to Iceland via Toronto to hike the Laugavegur Trail. You can see her pictures from this trip here. She also took a couple of videos showing the landscape, but they will need additional processing before posting. Check back soon to see them.
8/11/2017 Update - The videos that Angel took in Iceland have now been added. To see them select "Videos" from the Main Menu, then "Angel's Excellent Adventures", then "Iceland", then the video you want to see. Le me know if you have any problems viewing them.
September 2016 Quick Trip to Grand Junction
In September, we drove to Grand Junction for a weekend to visit Curtis' cousins Ken and Alice at their house there (as opposed to their farm where they live in Nebraska). We made it a full 3 days visiting the Colorado National Monument, hiking in Bangs Canyon to the Mica Mine, visiting the peach orchards in Palisade, and then driving up on the Grand Mesa to take in the views there before returning home. To get there, we drove up to Breckenridge and then through Glen Canyon through the heart of the Rocky Mountains. For variety for the return we drove US 50 over Monarch Pass. Pictures from the trip have been posted in the Photo Gallery here.
Pictures FINALLY posted from May, 2016 Vacation
OK. I guess you could say that we are slow, or maybe lazy, but there were a few factors working against us. Curtis got through about half of the almost 1800 pictures when his laptop died. Fortunately, backups did work and the effort was saved once a new laptop was acquired. Also, the website at that time was on an old version of software, so updating it seemed like the right thing to do before putting more photos out there. Then time got away from us with other concerns in the family. So, here we are; the photos have been whittled down to *only* 660, the site has been updated, and we're almost ready to post pictures from this year's vacation. The photos can be seen here, or just drill down through the photo gallery menu to find them under Travels and Sightseeing.
Website Update Completed
The menus for the Weisenborn Photos have now be completed. Enjoy and/or reminisce.
Our website has been updated with a new version of the site software to take advantage of some new features and security updates. Except for the menu system, It should look familiar but with a few minor differences. This meant rebuilding almost everything including the Photo Albums. Older articles were not reproduced, but most Photo Albums have been reproduced. The Weisenborn Family Photos, however, are in progress. Videos have not been carried over at this time since they will need to be updated to be compatible with newer browsers.
I call this a vacation though some might argue that since we're retired, we're always on vacation. We've lived in Colorado for 10 years and haven't seen a lot of the sights of the state, so we set out to partly remedy that. We left home on August 27, 2015 and drove the back way to Salida, then went over Monarch Pass and continued to Montrose before heading south through Ooray to Durango. We spent the next day at Mesa Verde National Park, took two of the tours of the ruins, plus another self-guided tour of another. We haven't done that much hiking in a while,
