Laurel, Charlie, Mom, and I drove to Hocking Hills – kind of southeast Ohio – for a couple days. The forest there is lush and beautiful, and Charlie kept saying, “This is like Costa Rica!” We even saw moss growing on trees. I asked Laurel if we’d ever seen moss in Colorado. She said, “I saw some under the hose once at our Castle Rock house.” We stayed in a cottage at Bear Run Inn which is owned and operated by Bud & Marcia Myers who just happen to have lived a few years of the 1960’s in Colorado Springs and were Lutheran missionaries before that. Bud took us and the other guests on a hayride Tuesday evening and we got to feed hay to his beautiful horses and see some of his farm.
