Colorado Adventures

Thursday, August 18, 2011
Here lately, the Smart Man and I have been getting a bit...sedentary when it comes to our recreational activities. Eating tasty food and watching good movies and television are fun, but there's more to do.

It's easy to fall into a rut, to get lazy when you're involved in a long term relationship. That's not really the best way to keep things lively and fun, though. So we've decided to make a commitment to participate in more non-couch related activities moving forward, including getaway weekends to various Colorado destinations.

It's a no-brainer, really. We live in Colorado for Pete's sake - a destination that people from all over the world pay big money to visit, and in true native fashion, we've failed to take advantage of the opportunities in our own backyards. We've been having fun exploring the Colorado tourism website, learning about new places and different events we might like.

In support of this endeavor, I'm going to blog about our adventures using the "Colorado Adventures" heading. First up: The Breckenridge Oktoberfest in September, along with a stay in a local Bed and Breakfast.

Westward, ho!

At your age I was hiking some of the higher passes in Rocky Mountain, which was one of my favorite places to spend a day off during a conference.

Hey, another coinkie-dinkie between us Janiece. This weekend we are taking Emily to San Diego for the first time to see Sea World and Legoland. Which are major attractions in California where we live and which I presume people from all over also pay good money to visit.

It says something (about the epidemic of taking our own backyard for granted) when she has been to Europe before she has taken a two hours' drive away from her birthplace.

Have fun exploring your backyard!

Oddly, I decided that I wanted to spent more time seeing *my* local sights, though for me, more for photography than for exercise.

I even ought two books!

There are also some awesome sounding music festivals in CO that I think you both will enjoy.
Sometime I really need to introduce you to my friends Chris and Wendy.
