2012 Denver Zombie Crawl

Zombie Dorothy and the good witch.

First Snow of the Season

We're getting our first snow of the fall. This is in fact the first real precipitation in months. I took this photo a few hours ago when there was less than half an inch on the deck. we're currently up to an inch and expect up to an other inch by morning. We are expecting about double that by Friday morning.

We got a slow moving visitor in the yard this evening. I 
have no idea what she/he is? But it was fun to watch.

Mitchell Lake in Fall

Mitchell Lake in Fall, Indian Peaks Wilderness. 

Fall has hit the high country again. Most of the lakes had started to freeze over. I took this just after sunset so I missed any after glow in the sky.

Fried Green Tomatoes?

I think Not.........I managed to rescue these before the freeze, but if not fried then what?

I did find some interesting green tomato salsa recipes and I'll be trying one of those.

Celebrating this year's Bountiful Garden

Lest we forget this was a very successful gardening year despite the 100+ degree temperatures mid-summer.  These were the last peppers harvested before the freeze.

No more squash for the season

Got our first hard frost of the season. Fall is definitely here. Much of the garden was just swinging into high gear producing fruit and vegetables, so this will halt that for the year. The growing season here on the front range is just too short.

FYI City Daily Photo Theme for October.......Sillouette

The City Daily Photo Blog Theme Day for October is nearly upon us. Have you, as yet, given some thought to your interpretation of our theme, ‘Silhouette’? There are a number of meanings to this word, and there is no need to feel restricted to the meaning in the English language. If you are a member of Face Book, you are welcome to post your contribution to the CDPB group page at If you are not a member of Face Book, you may care to post at As you post your October Theme contribution, please vote for your choice of the five suggested themes for November (My Street, Fresh Fruit and Vegetables, The Water’s Edge, Ageing (dis)gracefully, or The Thrill of the Dance). You may vote at either location, but please only vote once! The results will be conflated at the close of voting on Monday 8th November.

For about 40 minutes, once every two minutes, the balloons would trigger their burners, producing a roar and lighting up their balloons. There was an attempt to synchronize everyone, but that only happened about half the time.

Turning on the gas

Once the balloons are inflated enough its time to light the burners. Each time they trigger the burners, the balloon lights up like a light bulb.

We went to the Colorado balloon classic "Balloon-Glo" this Labor Day Weekend. It was held at dusk in Colorado Springs.
The balloonists start by partially inflating their craft with giant fans.
This process takes quite some time.
