I had the distinct pleasure of tagging along with my friend Bill on a trip to visit his brother in Snowmass Colorado. What an amazing place. Bill’s brother John and his lovely wife Karla were gracious enough to put up with me for a couple of days and I can’t thank them enough. Here are some of the pictures I took on that trip. I still have some to work on but I wanted to get these posted so Bill, John and Karla could take a look.
