The Plan

Well, it's 16 days till departure. We're leaving Saturday, June 30th and taking 10 days to drive out to Boulder, CO to do lots of climbing and hiking. We're hoping to see Niagara Falls, Detriot, Chicago, Minneapolis/St. Paul (yes, I'm going to make Dan go to the Mall of America!), Mt. Rushmore, and Devils Tower.

From July 10th-24th we'll be staying at the Boulder Mountain Lodge in Boulder Canyon. We spent a good deal of our honeymoon there 5 years ago so it will be fun to be back. Once in Boulder we're going to climb the Flatirons and lots of other rock. We're then hoping to visit Colorado Springs before heading out towards Aspen to hike Mt. Elbert, CO's highest peak at 14,443 ft. From there it's on to Salt Lake City for some multipitch sport climbing.

We need to be back in MA by August 12th, so we'll probably start heading home on August 5th. We plan to go through Kansas, St. Louis, the Rock n' Roll Hall of Fame, and Hershey Park.

If you have any sight-seeing recommendations please let us know!
