One of our first trips was to an area where we once lived - Bailey, Colorado. Our house was located in a small community adjacent to the Pike National Forest at an elevation of 9000ft. I remember one year that we had a snowfall every single month!

We drove up into the National Forest (fondly called The National by all the locals).
And soaked up the beauty which surrounded us.
A trip to the Bailey area wasn't complete without stopping to eat at one of our old favorite eateries - Hog Heaven Pit Bar-B-Q. They have the bestest bar-b-q meats! Smoked & cooked right there on site. I can remember when Rod the owner started out in an old train caboose. (Rod's father was a Tuskegee Airman.)

Tomorrow we'll go on a wildflower photo tour of Pike National Forest.
