As a retired teacher and school district administrator, I'm living my next dream life - full of travel and adventure.
Canon City, with more than 300 days of sunshine a year, is a great place to visit and live. It's why it has been my home for almost 30 years. More often than not, you'll find me floating in my "duckie" (inflatable kayak) on the Arkansas River and other Colorado streams or strolling the trails throughout Fremont and Chaffee counties.
When I'm not playing in my backyard, I am off exploring other parts of the country or world. The current profile picture is from a 75 mile raft trip on the Snake River in Idaho. WOW, that's big water. On my "bucket list" is Yellowstone National Park, New Zealand, and southeast Asia. Of course, I'd take return trips to Yosemite National Park and Peru - Machu Picchu. :)
What's on your "bucket" list?
