Zeb the Duck has a new Christmas Hat

Mom was planning to have dinner with a friend.   Our friend specifically ask for me, Zeb the Duck, to come to dinner also.   Our friend made me a Christmas hat.

Isn’t this great?   I love it.   I told mom I wanted to go to the mountains where it is colder to wear my Christmas hat.   We went to Estes Park, one of our favorite places.   Here I am with Mr. and Mrs. Claus.

Christmas decorations and pretty and so much fun to see.   I like this toy soldier.

I bet he likes me with my new hat.   Of course, every trip to Estes Park means we get salt water taffy and fudge.   I love to watch the machine pulling taffy.

When we left Estes Park this time, we drove through Big Thompson Canyon.   The road, US Highway 34 follows the Big Thompson River.   There is some ice on the river and some moving water also.

We love this canyon.

It is so pretty.   I am not in this photo, but we thought it was pretty and shows the Rocky Mountains with partial sun.

Beautiful Rocky Moutains.

This is another picture of me, with my new Christmas hat, and a beautiful Colorado canyon.

The road crosses the Big Thompson River several times, and people live in this canyon.   Some bridges from the road to the houses are like this one.

Some bridges are higher above the water like this one.

Some people raft and kayak on the Big Thompson River in places with the higher bridges.   Along the river there are several homes, smaller cabins, and  few small lodges.

Highway US 34 connects the towns of Loveland and Estes Park through Big Thompson Canyon.   Many other parts of the highway are also pretty, but this is our favorite part.   I am so happy I went to Estes Park and through the Big Thompson Canyon.   And thank you, Verna, for my new Christmas hat.   My head was nice and warm.
