A little over a week ago was our annual Northern Colorado Writers retreat. Me and twelve other members headed to the beautiful Sylvan Dale Ranch, just west of Loveland, Colorado. We traveled to this oasis for an undisturbed weekend of writing and camaraderie.
It is difficult to paint the magic of the weekend with words, so I will show you with photos.
|Sylvan Dale always shows us some good old-fashioned western hospitality|
|The Wagon Wheel Bunkhouse where all 13 of us stayed|
|Our favorite cowboy, David Jessup; co-owner of Sylvan Dale and NCW member. |
He joined us on Friday night for a glass of wine.
|Some of us hanging out by the fire after an amazing dinner and a few hours of writing.|
|Taking a break from writing for some games of Banagrams|
|Amazing river art created by a ranch visitor a couple weeks earlier|
|I love pictures with paths because it reminds me that new opportunities await|
Some of the other retreaters blogged about their experiences. Here are the links to those posts:
