Moon's celebrate Autumn in the Rockies

Tuesday, November 24, 2009

The Moon's, Ron, Bruce and wife Becky, and Mandy "Mimi," enjoyed the beautiful mountains and villages in the Denver area.

The awesome vistas of the Rocky range was ablaze with the fall colors. The popular destination of the Garden of the Gods, Manitou Springs, Colorado Springs, Pike's Peak, Canon City, Royal Gorge and Rocky Mountian Park wer explored.

The family especially enjoyed Salida and Estes park and were delighted with the discovery of Hoosier Pass, named for some Indiana gold miners.

Ron, a 50's graduate of Brazil High School, is a semi-retired teacher with Vigo County Schools. Bruce, an 80's graduate of Brazil High School and Indiana University, is a Vice President for One America. Becky, a graduate of Washington High School and Vincennes Univesity, is employed by Hendricks Co. Tourism. Mandy, a graduate of Northview High School and is an RN at St. Vincent's Heart Center in Indianapolis.

They were treated to a preview of winter as snow fell in the higher elevations and ice fog added to the beauty of the journey of discovery.

Was it really necessary to include their educational & employment background?

I'm surprised that they didn't include what kind of cars they drive, where they shop, where they get their hair cut, what they had for lunch, what their favorite color(s) is, etc. etc. But really, who cares?

Why is this article newsworthy in the first place? I stayed at a Holiday Inn Express and you didn't print that.
