Long story short – this is an aside, after all – I got bit by a marmot of all things. In a dream, mind you, I don’t go around trying to poke these things in real life. Though, I have seen one in real life and it was quite cute!
So, my mother decided on rather short notice that my family and I were going to go on a vacation. We did. We drove up into Rocky Mountain National Park and stayed a couple nights, shopped around Estes Park a little, and drove up Trail Ridge Road. It was a nice time!
We saw a couple of elk…
And also a marmot.
Loki and Frey decided to tag along as well! They enjoyed my dad’s music a great deal (They were dancing in the back seat of the car at one point, and playing air-instruments at another. Frey headbanging to Oingo Boingo is the funniest.) as well as the views and the crisp, thin, mountain air.
So that’s where I’ve been the last few days! I got a chunk of optical calcite while I was up there too, so now I have my very own viking sun stone. 😀 It was enormous amounts of fun, hopefully I’ll be able to go up there with Bran at some point.
And with that I’ll bid you all adieu! See you around, and have a good one.
