Maroon Bells and a Couple Car Accessories

184 miles

We watched the end of "The Lightning Thief" by Rick Riordan on TV Wed. night, which spurred the children to plug in the audio book in the car on our drive to the mountains. The book is well written and entertaining. The children (middle and high school aged) are anxious to get back in the car to turn on the CD player. This story is the story of three children on a quest. Rick Riordan has created a modern day setting and incorporated Greek mythology characters and stories, which adds to the tale. I recommend the The Lightning Thief: Percy Jackson and the Olympians: Book 1 (Percy Jackson & the Olympians) for all ages.

This morning I drove to view the Maroon Bells outside of Aspen listening to Sara Evans through DirectDeck HandsFree adapter for the iPhone. the device works great to play my music and place and receive telephone calls through the car speakers. Here is one of my photographs of the mountains and a pretty daisy I found in the field nearby.
