Trick or Treat!

In Estes Park, it would be dangerous to have house-to-house trick-or-treating in the neighborhoods because of the wildlife. People take in their hummingbird and bird feeders at night to avoid tempting bears. Can you imagine how yummy a little kid would look to a mountain lion or coyote? So instead the entire town heads downtown for trick-or-treating from store-to-store.

I was utterly charmed by what a multi-generational, family event this was! Estes Park has a very large retired population and the retired people had some of the best costumes. I thought this guy was the most creative. He was a U.S. Department of Treasury Bailout Specialist. He gave me a billion dollars and said he only had to give out 699 more.

You couldn't have Halloween in 2008 without McCain and Palin!

Mars Attack! One of the most awesome movies of all time!

I followed these two for half a block
and could not figure out what there were.

Ketchup and Mustard!

Of course!

How cute, love the treasury agent! Did you dress, as well?

No, I didn't. I'm still waiting for my first year ever of getting a creative idea for a Halloween costume!

Karen, the guy in the bailout costume did RAGBRAI with me but he rode tandam with a blind man on the back. He also climbed Long's peak and accidentally cut his jugler vein with his Ice pick. 2 EMT's saw it happened and one of them had to hold his hand on his neck for something like 14 hours during his rescue. He is a pretty amazing man. Your sis.
