The Hike

Our "want to do" list for our Colorado visit was pretty short ... hike in the mountains, see a mountain stream. And a mountain lake.  Check out some eateries, go to Boulder ... and maybe downtown Denver.  We knocked out our list like it was our job for 5 days.

First the hike.

We started the day with breakfast in Boulder.  The Kitchen did not disappoint.  The delicious food, comfortable atmosphere and friendly staff made our breakfast very enjoyable.  So much to like about this place!  If you are ever in Denver or Boulder -- go!


Rolled hand towels in restroom in place of hand dryers and paper towels!  Love.
Community Night.  How awesome is that?  Would you go?  I would!
Someday I'm going to have a community dinner at The Cottage.
Would you come and have dinner with people you don't know?


Hike followed breakfast. 


 Mountain stream


rustic (abandoned) cabin in the mountains


off trail hiking was a benefit ...
Several waterfalls.

hiking up the mountain trail on the snow was tricky.
hiking back down was even trickier!

we packed a light lunch (snack) and some wine


and relaxed and dined here
