The Week's End

Friday morning we decided to go on a short hike...hah! We walked to the back of the lodge's property onto the Betasso Preserve. We followed game paths up to the loop trail which as about 3 miles. It was a fun hike, but it wasn't a quick one. After three hours we finally were able to navigate our way back to the lodge. Those deer really need to mark their trails a bit better, let me tell you!

For lunch it was off to one of Boulder's main tourist attractions: The Dashanbe Tea House. Not only was it absolutely gorgeous, but we got to sit at a cool table where we needed to take off our shoes and sit cross-legged and the food was outstanding! This is definitely one of our new Boulder favorites. After dessert it was off to the movies to see In Bruges. We loved it!

Before heading back to the lodge for a quiet evening, we browsed the shops of Pearl Street and stopped in the chocolate and wine bar for some goodies.

On Saturday Laurel started the morning off with a run while Dan adjusted our flight and car rental plans. Before heading to the Denver Airport we hit Chatauqua Park for a quick hike at the base of the Flatirons. They were still awe-inspiring even after tackling one this summer. Our flight was uneventful and we arrived in Boston to lots of snow on the ground (and the car).
