Impressions from the Denver PowWow

I hope you enjoy the few snapshots I took at the Denver 2013 March PowWow yesterday. This PowWow will go on for two more days. I am glad we made it home in time before a big snowstorm hit Denver.

 I am praying that everyone who is attending today and tomorrow stays safe on the roads!

Thanks, ladies! One year my daughter actually danced with the Indians. I wasn't brave enough. Maybe next year...
