Mike and I were so excited to spend this weekend in Estes Park with his family and his parent’s dear friends – Jeff and Pam – who are visiting from New Hampshire. We arrived Sunday evening and all stayed in a great four bedroom YMCA cabin. It was so much more enjoyable than a hotel because we could cook (and drink lots of wine), chat around the fire and take in the incredible views from the gigantic wrap-around porch.
On Saturday morning we took to the trails for a scenic horseback ride. The weather was perfect and the Aspens are just starting to turn.
After horseback riding Mike, Jeff, Nate and I took a ride up Trail Ridge Road in Rocky Mountain National Park. I almost didn’t go, and cannot believe the scenery I would have missed! I kept saying, “I can’t believe we are just a few hours from Denver.” We truly live in an incredible place. At the top we hiked up a little trail to take it all in…
Thank you Anderson’s and Andersen’s (yes, that’s with an ‘e’) for such a special weekend. We can’t wait for Pam and Jeff to come back for our wedding next year!
