Run to the Hills

by Larry

Colorado Aspens in South Park  I’m off the Buffalo Peaks again for a camping trip with the kids.   If you don’t know, Buffalo Peaks is in South Park Colorado, south of the town of  Fairplay.  Yes, it’s the same South Park that inspired the television series but haven’t run into Kyle, Stan, Cartman or Kenny… Yet.  The pictures featured here were taken at the peaks and they are also featured in the banner photo for my other website.

So what does this have to do with guitar?  I’m contemplating whether or not I should bring that six string addiction.  On one hand, I need the rest to let my hands recover but being at the peaks brings out sobuffalo_peaksme really good playing, especially when I’m with my father-in-law, who has a library of incredible music to listen to the whole weekend.

I guess there are worse things to be pondering over.  More than likely, I’ll be talking it…AHHHHHHH, who am I kidding.  Writing this post, convinced me to bring it.  I’m already leaving my laptop behind, I can’t deny myself both of my vices.

See ya Sunday!

Hope you had a great time Larry. My son and I spent Friday and Saturday fishing with other guys from church. Didn’t take my guitar tho’. I knew I’d not have the time. I was right.

Thanks! We did have a great time. Got some good playing in while the kids played in the water. Didn’t have a recorder with me so that sucks. Had some good ideas I can’t recall now.

I laughed over this post! Half way through I was thinking, “Aaaw heck, take the dang thing and you can play only just little if your fingers hurt too much.” And then I kept reading and laughed out loud when you said you were taking it. I LOVE IT!!! Of course you will take it. The laptop can wait,that’s not the soul of you. the guitar is!

The pics are lovely. Years and years ago I lived in CO and loved it. And camping is the “bomb”, such good fun and the best place to have a guitar. All that nature flowing into you and you’ll find yourself regretting it if you don’t take it. 🙂 Have fun and HAPPY TUNES!! Rainforestrobin 🙂

Thanks robin! I had a wonderful time and glad you liked the pics. It was your site that inspired me to add a few nature pics to the post.
