She retired in 2002 when they moved to Pagosa Springs.
Carol enjoyed many activities, with horses being her dedicated activity for over 40 years. Carol rode on a five-day, 130-mile, organized horse ride through Death Valley in November for 18 years. She and Lin also rode on a five-day charity horse ride in Arizona for 16 years. Carol enjoyed walking with friends and Lin with their dog through the trails here in Pagosa. Carol loved ice skating in the small backyard rink Lin built, especially on a blue moon night in Pagosa.
