The last month has been almost all traveling. And working hard in between to be sure to be ready to go out of town …
In the last month around here …
…. I spent a LOT of time in the car. 16 hours from here to Boulder, CO and 16 hours back a week later. All 16 hours in a day. Luckily Andrew drove. ALL OF IT.
…. we took a short-ish hike in the hills around Boulder (maybe an hour or less)
…. I learned Andrew LOVES dams. Loves. Who knew?
…. we met my brother’s girlfriend. She’s great
…. we visited Rocky Mountain National Park and saw elk SUPER close to the road
…. we spent a lot of time driving through RMNP and then another several hours on the west side and south of the park. Gorgeous, but a lot of driving.
…. we drove through a lot of rain and storming in Colorado
…. we went on a guided tour of Avery Brewery and I tried several different beers
…. we played ‘beer pong’ without beer. My first time. I did pretty OK.
…. we spent 4 hours hiking through Roosevelt National Forest
…. we went on a guided tour of the Stanley Hotel. SO fun
…. we stuck our feet in a creek at Rocky Mountain National Park
…. we went on a very short, easy hike around Bear Lake in RMNP
…. we got a drum kit that the cats love.
…. I did a few projects around the house like fix a door latch that the previous owner installed wrong and trimmed a tree in the back that was growing through the fence
…. we went camping in Yosemite!!
…. and Andrew tried out some rock climbing shoes that he loves
…. we went on an almost 4-mile hike with Kam and her boyfriend in Yosemite
…. we played Cards against Humanity for the first time
…. we had breakfast at Denny’s after camping. The best time for Denny’s
