Out and about in Colorado

We’ve had a good time so far here in Colorado! I can’t believe we didn’t move here earlier. Last weekend my brother came in town for the holiday, we went all over the place. Saturday we went to SAME Cafe for lunch, even though our friends Brad and Libby were out of the state (they run the place)! I gotta remember that they’re always gone for labor day. From there we drove through Denver and up through Boulder before heading up to a dressage barn for Natalie to watch one of her students ride. Greg and I took off to Estes Park for a couple of hours while she did that.

Boy was that a great move, it’s amazing up there, look what we got to see!

Natalie wasn’t too happy that Greg and I got to see a bear out in the wild, she was wanting to see one as well! Maybe she’ll get to see one this weekend.

Sunday morning we got up early and went to Golden to go rock climbing with some of Greg’s friends who were in town. That was a fun time, I did the least climbing, but took a lot of pictures! Here’s a shot of Natalie

Sunday afternoon Greg and I hit the Cherry Creek trail, he rode our old garage sale bike, I skated. Here’s the data from the trip

Monday we went to Cherry Creek state park to the shooting range and had some fun shooting at targets there, followed by a hike that evening with the dogs.

We went down to Castlewood Canyon State Park, which is only about 13 miles from our house. We hiked a few miles, unfortunately my Garmin was dead and didn’t record any of it, but I got quite a few photos, here are a few of them. It was great having Greg here for a few days, we were worn out by the time he left, I’m still trying to catch up on sleep!

Wednesday I went skating again, I skated further than I think I ever have before, 11.7 miles. I’m going to try to top that distance in the coming week, maybe even on Saturday!

That’s all for now, I think we’re going to hit Breckenridge on Sunday, hopefully with some hiking in the mountains. We’ve gotta start prepping for the 14’rs, we’re hoping to start doing this fall.
