Colorado is a beautiful state, probably our favorite. However, it’s very mountainous. Some days we go up 7 000ft, and descend the same. We even went up a couple 14 000er’s. And my sister and bro-in-law came for a visit in Denver where we went on an eating and drinking binge. It was a splendid weekend!
Summit of Mount Massive at 14 521ft.
Oh the odd things people donate to us.
Our 200th day.
Summit of Massive.
It would appear that Old Man Winter has finally caught up to us.
Hitching to Denver.
Driving to Denver. Oh Dear Godness. I’m driving in a city of 3 million and I haven’t driven since August. Help!
My Sister and Brother-In-Law came for a visit.
We went to the Avery Brewery in Boulder. It was fantastic! And if you walk there from Canada, they shower you with free beer. Totally worth it!
They even gave us a beer that hadn’t been released yet called Tweak. It was almost 18% strong. Now that’s what I call an energy drink!
Afterwards we went to a meadery. Yum!
Going on a beer tour.
Sister and I heading to a brunch all-you-can-eat and drink buffet. How civilized!
And now we head back to the trail, hitching from Canon City. A town known for having 13 prisons. That can’t be good for hitch hiking. Oh dear. Really oh dear!
