This evening, we attended a benefit concert at the Western Colorado
Botanical Gardens' Elizabeth B. Harris Amphitheatre. The concert was
being held to support the Dream Catcher Therapy Center and End of
the Trail Horse Rescue and Sanctuary.

to effectively rescue and rehabilitate horses and empower people with
physical and mental health challenges through interaction with horses
in a unique, clinical setting.
Three separate bands played, but I especially enjoyed the Native American
Flute playing between each set.
Lynn donated two knitted caps for the silent auction.

the Colorado River flow by.

from the mountains and the recent rainfall we've had have definitely filled its
We had a fun time at the concert, visiting with friends and enjoying the music...
all for a good cause!
