Yup, that couple in the fleece jackets is me and my husband. We were in Colorado this past weekend to visit my parents, and we drove up to the top of Pikes Peak - Tim's first time and something my parents and I haven't done for nearly 20 years. You can also take a rail car up, or crazy people hike it.
It was cold at the top! While temps were in the 80s (28+ C) in the city, the summit of the mountain was about 32 F (0 C). We were lightheaded because of the lack of oxygen. Trees don't even grow up there. The drive up is actually very pretty:
Anyway, back to work and reality. I have a 4 day weekend for the 4th of July, so I am planning on a sewing marathon - I saw some great stuff in the July BWOF preview, and I have a couple online fabric orders heading my way!
