On our last day in Canon City the focus was on the funeral of our sister-in-law Diane. Because she had lived in the community almost all her life and was active in school and civic affairs, the family arranged to hold the service in the largest church in the area. John was the officiant. After the service and entombment in Mountain Vale Cemetery, once owned by his and Tim's father, we drove to our trailer in Pueblo West and headed to Cherry Creek State Park near Denver.
There were some interesting and really attractive cloud formations during our time in Pueblo West.
While at Cherry Creek, we celebrated our daughter-in-law Liz's 50th birthday. We took dinner to their house. She had a special birthday wine glass and there were 5 candles on the cake we brought.
We also saw a beautiful sunset while at Cherry Creek.
The park also has a few mule deer.
At the end of the week we headed north, hopefully headed to our major destinations of Glacier and Grand Teton National Parks.
