Weekend Viewing


I had a room with a view this weekend at the Rocky Mountain Knitter's Retreat. We took over Alta Lodge and had a great time knitting, talking, laughing, eating, drinking and then doing it all again. I had a fabulous massage on Saturday that calmed down many of my back problems. 


From the dinning room we could see a sliver of a view of the sunset and the valley below. Leaving all the news, the running about, and the day to day of life down in the valley was quite a treat. I hardly looked at my phone and took very few pictures. It was just a fabulously relaxing weekend. 

21580399938_398457ee9a_kBefore I left the canyon on Sunday I drove up the road to look down on the city of Alta and it's scenic beauty. The colors of the aspens were as bright and golden as can be and the sky gave all it could to the weekend, too. 

Last night I watched the moon come up near total eclipse and kept watching until the shadow passed and the moon was whole again. Being able to watch this stunning phenomenon was a wonderful cap to my weekend.  Today I have the day off and I'm going to run my usual errands, But will also take a few minutes to relax and keep the calm beauty of the weekend within my heart. 


Alta is such a beautiful place and I'm so glad you go to go and relax and soak it all in. Enjoy your day off today!

Another wonderful-sounding weekend! I totally forgot about the eclipse. D'oh!

It was a fabulous weekend!

Oh, Margene! It sounds so perfect! I'm glad you had such a relaxing weekend -- just what a RETREAT should be. XO

PS -- I thought about you all weekend, and was with you in spirit. :-)

It was my first time at the retreat and I loved it. That brunch!!! :)

I'm so glad you had a relaxing and rejuvenating time at the retreat. Yes, do keep all that calm, relaxed feeling while you run around and get caught up. Savor it.

I had a great view of the eclipse, but from the middle of my street. Still fabulous. The best news is that the massage helped you. YAY!

Gorgeous! What a wonderful weekend away!! I enjoyed moon-watching last night, too.

Gorgeous views, glowing aspens, knitting, relaxation, and the appreciation of it all make the perfect weekend! Thanks for sharing!

What a wonderful weekend and a perfect ending with the lunar Blood Moon and eclipse!

So pretty, Margene! I can always count on you for beautiful mountain views. Love the golden fall leaves, too.

Where is the yarn in these pictures? How wonderful to join other knitters in such a glorious spot.

beautiful getaway and you sound so very restored :) I hope you bought yarn or at least fondled yarn.
