This was not a happy picnic. Don and I pulled over on a Colorado road and grabbed the bread and peanut butter and moped. We were frustrated. We had reservations at an iconic 4-room hotel in Creede, CO.
There was only one road into town and it was shut down due to wild fires. We had just gotten off the phone with our host who said the hotel was fine, but there was no way to reach it. We canceled and ate our sandwiches, trying to figure out which direction to go.
Update: That was 4+ plus years ago and we did make it back to Creede Hotel last fall!
Mom's Picnic List
In honor of my mother on the first Mother's Day since she has passed, I dedicate a new list... Mom's Picnic List!
Mom loved picnics and she raised her kids to appreciate the simple pleasures of food, family and friends in the great out of doors.
I will spend a year reflecting on as many past picnics as I can remember. But, I'll also
appreciate the here and now by creating new picnic experiences. My goal is to share at least 60 picnic memories, since that's how many years Mom was a mom!
Let the picnics begin!
