Starting our vacation; a field outside of Flagstaff, AZ.
The closing of Oz marks the official start of our family vacation; the first stop being Flagstaff, AZ. It’s a place that brings back a lot of happy memories. The photo above was taken on a 30 mile bike jaunt to Sedona, where I caught the late afternoon sun warming my spectacular descent into Oak Creek Canyon. Next was a two day visit to explore the ancient ruins of Mesa Verde, Colorado. It’s a unique spot, and we’ll remember the brilliant starry night that became even more dazzling when our isolated hotel experienced a power failure on the first night of our visit!
I’m writing this from Telluride, Colorado. It’s our first visit to this quirky mountain town with a flavor that’s a bit of a throwback to the 60’s. Spectacular scenery is the rule here, as you can see from the waterfall behind me, and the view I earned after a rugged climb on an old mining road.

Stay tuned for some more images of our trek to Grand Teton National Park. We hope to leave our reflection in many a Rocky Mountain stream along the way!
Here’s our teaching schedule for August:
Violin Students: Lessons resume on August 21st, according to normal schedule.
Vocal Students: Melanie will be off until after Labor Day. Lessons will resume Tues. Sept. 4th. Students will be contacted the last week of August to set up fall schedules.

Thanks, and enjoy your summer!
