A tiny T-Rex underfoot in Denver airport’s B terminal floor is nibbling my toe.
The Royal Gorge
Here’s a picture from my archives : a 1999 road trip during which my friend Marlien (that’s her on the suspension bridge) and I stopped at the Royal Gorge close to Canon City, Denver. At 955 feet (291 m) above the river way below, the bridge held the record of highest bridge in the world from 1929 to 2003. On June 11, 2013, a wildfire broke out in the Royal Gorge Park of Canon city that ultimately destroyed 48 of 52 buildings in the Royal Gorge Bridge & Park.
Canon City
The area by Canon City known as Garden Park is one of the richer dinosaur fossil beds in the U.S. A. Fossil hunters have been pulling bones from the ground here since 1877.

I’d better enjoy coming home this Thursday night, because for the next several weeks we are going to have to stick around until mid-day on Fridays.   We are pushing hard to get all the design work for our project done before the disruptions of Thanksgiving and Christmas (good disruptions nonetheless!) are upon us.   The year 2013 is running out on all of us.  Yikes !
