Cabin in the Woods

Thanks to everyone who has followed our journey so far!  I wish I had time to keep up with all your posts, but we've been a pretty busy and we fall into a deep sleep at the end of every day!  
Last night we had one more Nepali dinner with the group and before the slide shows began, gathered for some group photos.  You can probably tell we had a lot of fun.  One of the group had these t-shirts made.  See the black band on one sleeve?  That is in memory of one of the group who passed away since the last gathering.  They also set up a memorial fund in his memory with Heifer, International.  They will provide animals to Nepali villagers in need.  
Of course there had to be a group photo of the wives!
We left the YMCA of the Rockies and checked into Pine Haven Cottages next to Fall River.  George gave us a great rate on the Preacher's Cabin and we are nestled in this evening.  We'll be here for two nights, then we begin the long trek home.
I love this cabin!  Here you see Mr. Squash relaxing in the living room.  All the decorations are wonderful!
We have a full kitchen and I actually "cooked" dinner for us tonight in the form of some great, microwaveable  dishes from Safeway.
These little touches make you feel like you're at home!
I took a walk around the property.  This is the office.  George's sister does all the plantings and George keeps them watered and happy.
Look - a Rocky Mtn Bighorn Sheep!  Thank goodness he isn't the kind that can sometimes stop traffic for real!
Check out the raccoons sunning themselves on a fallen log!
We are just a few steps away from the river.  George said some beautiful brown trout have been caught here the past few days.  We may have to try our hands tomorrow.
We don't have to worry about these bear foraging in the garbage cans.  And I know a doggie here and there that would love the red fire hydrant!
Check out this lovely little sitting area.  Do click on any of the photos for a better look!

I have no idea what we'll do tomorrow, but stay tuned for a report!

I simply love that cabin. Wish I was there. I am going to the Smoky Mountains in October with my sister and niece and we are renting a cabin. So excited to do that. I was in Estes Park in 1989 camping with DH and two kids 5 and 2 1/2. Wonderful memories!

It is a lovely cottage, cozy and warm! The surroundings are beautiful and lush! The raccoon and bear logs are so cute!
The flowers around the office are charming! Have a safe and pleasant trip to home.

What a merry bunch you all were! I hope you have a relaxing couple of days in the cabin to recharge your batteries. It looks like the perfect place.
