Winter Park


Have you missed me?

We left last Wednesday and arrived home tonight from a great trip to Winter Park. We went with MIL and FIL for business and pleasure. FIL and Stacey did some work, and got to play. MIL and I shopped and rested. SO FUN! We did meet up with the guys after golf and hit a few balls at the golf course Pole Creek, I think it was in the town of Frazier. It looks like I just took a baseball swing! Not sure if TIGER would approve, but the ball did go far!
















The true reason for the trip was a wedding of Randy Ellis. He works at the Denver office of Pearson Mechanical. The wedding was supposed to be outside, but it rained on and off all day, so they moved it inside. This wedding was a first for me. I have never been to a sit down reception...it was so fun! We sat with people we have never met and ate some really good food.














On Saturday, Stace and I went for a hike. We found this old broken down ski resort. I am sure it wasn't really hidden, but we didn't know it was there. We hiked up this HUGE moutain, where the ski run used to be. We got really high and turned around to see how far we had climbed when we noticed a storm rolling in. It came in really fast. We were stuck on top of the moutain. You can see from the picture, we were standing in the sun and within minutes we were getting rained on. We ran into a geologist guy who was quickly exiting the moutain due to lightening. He directed us to the lava rock side. We had so much fun looking at all the rocks. There were also really pretty aspen trees everywhere and some were beginning to change colors. This one was bright red.

I have tried to upload pictures 4 times, SO this is what you get for now. I may try to repost tomorrow with more. We sure missed the kids! It was so good to see them tonight. Mammy and Dee did some spoiling and Parker loved WAKAHACHIE!
