Colorado or Bust

Highlights from the trip:

  • star gazing at Strawberry Hot Springs
  • my Pilgrim sandwich at Provisions (turkey + stuffing + cranberry on a baquette = better than actual Thanksgiving dinner
  • seeing a deer goat antelope ram on the side of the road
  • finding 'St. Louis style ribs' at two restaurants in Steamboat
  • trying to use chopsticks at A1 Sushi
  • the snow stacked up on top of the houses like layers of a cake. I wish I had a good picture of it. It was amazing.
  • Manitou Springs at the base of Pike's Peak. Such a cute, little town. I wish I had been able to spend more time there.
  • tubing in the snow riding the uphill people mover up the hill with my tube instead of walking
  • donuts at the summit of Pike's Peak... they really are good!
  • all the yellow signs for FM Light and Sons (since 1905!). The actual store was sort of a letdown...
  • visiting Garden of the Gods
  • seeing the boy teach his nephews geography and what 'racecar' is backwards
  • the drive
  • stopping at little diners to eat breakfast. We stopped in Kremmling at the Moose Cafe and then in Simla at The Hen House Cafe. The waitress there kept a guest book with notes from all the travelers that stopped through! If you ever go, look for a note from 'Joe and Danielle'!
  • Fat Tire on draft
