Where I live

As I walked to the courthouse today to get signatures from my boss, I took some pictures of downtown La Junta. La Junta has about 7,000 people and is out on the eastern plains of Colorado. A lot of people think that Colorado is all mountains but that is not true.

Here is the downtown area between Second and Third Streets. The buildings are about a century old – nothing like your castle!

In Spanish, La Junta means “the joining”. This was where the Cimarron Trail and the Santa Fe Trail met and split off in different directions. Many people traveled through here on their way out West. Here’s a monument located in the courthouse parking lot. In the background that brown building is the Kit Carson Hotel. It’s no longer in use but it’s a good example of Art Deco architecture. The hotel’s hey day was during the railroad days. The train station is just down the street.

Here is our movie theater. “Mission Impossible 3” and “The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo” are playing.

Here one of the Baptist churches in town. It was built in 1885. I’ve always liked this building. Inside it has beautiful stained glass.To the left is an example of one our Victorian houses.

This might be a weird picture, but this gate blocks the alleyway where actor Charles Bronson ran after escaping from jail in the movie “Mr. Majestyck.” There was a shoot out scene in front of our post office.

And, last but not least, the U.S. is getting ready to satiate the never-ending thirst of the tax man. This sign represents that annual deadline of April 15:

Hello from UK (week 1)

Hi Lisa

As promised, here are some photos of Powys Castle.

My work is not far from this place, may be 5- 6 min to drive. Park is open to the public. It is very nice just to sit on the bench and look at beautiful landscape.

This week we had first winter weather this year. Temperature drop till – 4C at night, and days were chilly but sunny.

Here is some photos

WELCOME to the Powys Castle 🙂
I like contrast between “wild” nature and manicured formal garden.
