DH and I are on our way to Oregon and decided to stop at Mesa Verde National Park. However, before we went there we stopped in Albuquerque, NM to visit Marsha of Grandma's quilts and an APQ block swapper with me and about 10 or 11 others. Below we are holding the quilts that we made from the swap in 2010. This was the first time that Marsha and I have met and she brought some other quilts to show me. I also showed her the quilts that I have in the camper as well as a few projects that I brought with me to work on. It was wonderful to meet Marsha after all this time.

After the Park Ranger gave us a tour of the palace area, explaining how they constructed it and the information that they know about it, we had to climb up some stone steps and some ladders to get back to the top of the mesa.
