At times it seems as though we are on vacation, although the five day work week gets in the way. Colorado is so beautiful. A simple drive toward the West (that's looking towards the mountains) can be breathtaking and almost surreal. The following are pictures of things we've done just in the past month.
|Our great friends, the Kief's, invited us to Telluride for our first weekend in Colorado. About a seven hour drive, but totally worth it! Telluride is amazing!|
|What do you get when a lawyer and financial planner get together...a great pair of guys!|
|Ahh, how cute!|
|This was a surprise. We were walking and saw, trees, trees, and then...hello waterfall.|
|Why would Brian not climb a rock?|
|When we got to the top we both still couldn't believe that this state is our new home.|
A view from the top where Brian "works out." I don't join these, I'm a little slow. Brian and some coworkers race up to the top after work and come down all before the sun sets.
Leave it to Brian to find somewhere to go wake boarding. It's a private lake with AMAZING views. Pictures can't do the views justice. If you look carefully, you can see the mountains in the background.
Even Maui has found her favorite spot. The local dog park has a little tiny lake. A perfect place for her to jump in and fetch tennis balls.
We were just driving home and were in awe of how beautiful the sky looked.
|Me at the beginning of the hike with my 100 ounces of water camelpak.|
|We set up a mini tri-pod to take our photo, yea we need more practice.|
|Even with her water bottle, she was EXHAUSTED toward the end. She would go ahead, find shade, and wait for us to catch up.|
|We thought these looked very tropical for the mountains.|
|On our way back down, notice how my purple shirt is gone. It was so hot and like Maui I was exhausted. I need to get into Colorado shape, fast!|
|This hike was a breeze for Brian.|
|Another hiker was kind enough to take our picture.|
|After work, we decided to go skiing. Brian brought out his slalom ski and I brought out the fancy camera. Just like ski team days!|
|Of course he still had to finish the day with his wake board.|
|One weekend we were invited along to go on a rafting trip, heck yea!! We brought our own booties, really regretted not bringing our own wet suits, these were kinda stinky.|
So far we are having a blast! Too bad, work gets in the way of our fun. We can't wait to see what new adventures await!
