Loveland, Colorado and Cornfest!

We went into Loveland, Colorado for the annual Corn Festival Parade and Festival.  Loveland is a very nice medium sized town with everything we needed.  We had a great time today.  The parade had 100 entries and took an hour and a half.
Every campground we go to, we hang up our chimes, either from a tree or on our Shepard's hook.  These chimes were given to Debbie and me by my mom (Hilda) for our first Christmas after we were married.  Whenever we hear the chimes, we always answer or talk to Mom.  Since Mom is home in Kingston, New York, having and hearing the chimes, we feel that she is with us, looking over us every time we hear the chimes.  The last photo below is of Debbie hanging up "Mom" at our campsite on Flatiron Reservoir, Colorado.
On our way into Loveland, we stopped at Devil's Backbone.
