I feel very fortunate to live in Loveland, Coloraodo. It is a pretty little town (pop. 66,000), but still feels like a small town. We are centrally located in northern Colorado with Ft Collins 10 miles to the north, and Denver 60 miles to the south. Estes Park and Rocky Mountain National Park are a 45 minute drive up the Big Thompson Canyon. Lake Loveland is a beautiful little lake in the middle of town, with the mountains to the west. We love the outdoors, and have gone on a lot of hikes in RMNP. You haven't really seen the park until you explore it on foot!
In my tile I used Golven for the lake (since it means waves) and the mountain on the left is Fife, to symbolize all the beautiful wildflowers, the mountain in the middle with Flux and Tipple symbolize the winter snow, and the mountain on the right is Hollibaugh to symbolize all the hiking trails. The heart in the lower right corner is for all the hearts you see around town (Loveland). This place is plastered with hearts in the month of February. The lower left corner is Finery...just for more outdoor beauty. Last but not least, is Ahh to symbolize the stars you can see while in the mountains at night.
SIDE NOTE: I am sure most of you have seen on the news that we have a large wildfire (High Park Fire) burning west of Ft Collins, with 250 plus homes lost and only 45% contained. We have had temperatures in the 100"s with no relief or rain in sight. In Estes Park, 21 homes were lost due to a fire on Saturday (that one is contained). Now there are other fires around the state too. Not a good summer for Colorado! Please keep the firefighters and families who have lost their homes in your thoughts and prayers.
