Here a duck, there a duck, everywhere a ____ ____




"I think a good product would be "Baby Duck Hat". It's a fake baby duck, which you strap on top of your head. Then you go swimming underwater until you find a mommy duck and her babies, and you join them. Then, all of a sudden, you stand up out of the water and roar like Godzilla. Man, those ducks really take off! Also, Baby Duck Hat is good for parties."

 - Jack Handy 




Some of the best scenery in Rocky Mountain National Park, other than the mountains themselves, are the streams and rivers which meander alongside trails....

Was so grand to see your pictures! When we traveled home to visit in CO this summer we were able to go to RMNP again. This year we were home earlier than usual and when we got to the summit they were just digging out the visitor's center...Still 20 feet of snow. Just as beautiful as ever! Thanks for the memories!
