Sundays Online: Rockmount Foundations

Our guided tour included a trip to the basement.  All good buildings begin with a strong foundation!



On the walls, the old inventory numbering system is still visible.

52 Rolls Week #23: A Trip to the 'Top of the World'

The 52 Rolls Project finds us 'at the top of the world' along the Trail Ridge Highway in Rocky Mountain National Park.  I was up there on the first weekend the road opened on the Saturday before Memorial Day.  It almost didn't happen, as they had to blast away some of the snow......



At the top a nice surprise, as the Park Service had made a snow carving to Celebrate 100 Years of the NPS>


And the Visitor's Center at the top of Trail Ridge.  Note the logs on the roof to keep it from blowinf off in high winds.
