Colorado, Thus Far

Colorado, How I love thee!

One of my favorite places in the world to vacation is the lovely state of Colorado!! I practically grew up coming to Aspen, Vail and Breckenridge as a kid and every year, to this day, I try and make it to colorado at least a couple of times!   I wouldn’t be picky about vacationing in any place here as long as I get to see the great outdoors and as long as I get to enjoy the gorgeous weather!! This vacation has been a little more relaxing, but it still has it’s fun moments!

 

Day#1: The arrival

Here are some pics from the first couple of days! Starting out with the airport… What an ordeal that was!!  Supposedly we were getting an SUV, but instead, what do we get………… a Lincoln Town Car!!! For 6 people with almost 12 pieces of luggage… Hmmm…. We ended up breaking the trunk of the car trying to cram everything in there!! We ended up with people on laps, luggage on laps and me in a seat made for a child up front!  It was a long ride!

But alas!! We found a Mexican food restaurant for lunch!  Going to Colorado to eat Mexican food… Excellent.  Surprisingly, it wasn’t all that bad!! The margaritas were great and I got hydrated on about 20 glasses of tea!  Mmmmmmmm…

Embarrassing!

After lunch we finally headed over to our lodge!  AMAZING!! On the side of a mountain with 5 bedrooms, each with it’s own TV and bathroom!!!  LOVE.

 

Off to dinner!! Gorgeous spot by a creek! 65 degrees and sitting outside was simply delightful! <3

 

Day #2: The Royal Gorge

 

The Sky Coaster over the Royal Gorge! Over 1k feet up! – Thanks Mike for being such a trooper!

And that concludes about 24 hours in Colorado!  More to come… Maybe.
