The Golden Lamb Lebanon Ohio

Last weekend we traveled to Lebanon Ohio for the 29th annual horse drawn carriage parade which was awesome as usual. I stopped by the Golden Lamb and took a photo. People such as Charles Dickens, Mark Twain and at least 12 US Presidents have been here and done that.

The Golden Lamb Inn is the oldest hotel in Ohio, having been established in the Warren County seat of Lebanon in 1803. The present four-story structure is built around the 1815 rebuilding of the inn, maintaining its colonial architecture. It is known as the Golden Lamb because that image appeared on its signboard for the benefit of the illiterate. At various times it has been known as the Ownly Hotel, the Bradley House, the Lebanon House, and the Stubbs House.

On January 12, 1978, it was added to the National Register of Historic Places as the Golden Lamb.

New Orleans Wedding Parade October 2017

A wedding march in the French Quarter of New Orleans. We were walking down Royal Street and ran into this wedding parade. Bourbon Street is under construction and so this is probably the second best thing. I thought it was great. Later on I think we ran into the same wedding march or at least it looked like it.

Bear Lake Rocky Mountain National Park Estes Park CO

This is our short video from Bear Lake to Nymph Lake in Rocky Mountain National Park near Estes Park Colorado over the July 4th Holiday weekend 2017.

This was the first time that I had been at or near 10,000 hiking and I was surprised about how hard it was to breath. We did a quick hike but didn’t go to Emerald Lake or Dream Lake. I would like to go back when we go to the Rocky Mountain National Park next time and walk more trails. We say an Elk, Deer and a lot of Chipmunks running around on the ground.
