Greetings blog friends! I'm back, did you miss me?? Did you even notice I was gone??
Anyways, remember how I mentioned we were going to do a road trip to Arizona, but Arizona was on fire, so we didn't? We brainstormed to come up with alternatives and settled on just driving a couple of hours up into the mountains and playing Tourist to Colorado.
We rented us a cozy 2 Bedroom condo and just had a lovely time. About an hour into the drive, we realized we had not one camera between the five of us. Oh fudge! How to visually record the trip!?
Suffice it to say that, through the magic of super high technology, I was able to capture images of the trip and share them here...
Here's us, heading for the hills in the big butt van:
Of course there was fishing. Didn't catch a darn thing.
The educational portion of the trip included a tour of a former Gold Mine. It was awesome and not for the claustrophobes!
Here's me, outside the mine, panning for gold in the nearby stream. I found some shiny bits and made friends with a sweet burro. I don't think I found much gold, but my burro friend did provide a friendly golden shower. *ahem*.
In the end, a great time. Colorado, you beautiful state you - and not on fire!
