I'm away from Houston until Tuesday on a brief trip to Denver, Colorado.
Monday is going to be spent visiting a teacher-training course at local language school. However, I'm going to have Sunday free and I'm planning to spend it in Rocky Mountain National Park. If I don't get struck down by altitude sickness (like I did in Utah in July), I should have a great time: beautiful landscapes and the possibility of seeing birds and perhaps even elk or moose.
While I'm in Denver, I'll also try to make a quick visit to the Rocky Mountain Arsenal NWR, in hopes of seeing Burrowing Owls. I missed them last time I visited, so wish me luck for this visit!
All being well, I'll start blogging about my trip on Wednesday morning.
