Tom and I just had the best five day vacation to Colorado.  We flew out there for many reasons: see Widespread Panic at Red Rocks, visit my friends, go hiking, and have some fun together.  We successfully did all of those things, and then some.

We were able to see two nights of Widespread Panic at Red Rocks. If you have never seen music at Red Rocks Amphitheater then you need to put it on your bucket list.  It is both beautiful and an amazing experience.  Thanks to my friend TC we were able to be in the second row one night and fifth row on the other.  Incredible seats.  If you look very closely you can see Tom in a blue hat talking to me in the second row left of center…..

 I loved hiking when I lived in Colorado. It was one of my favorite pastimes. I was itching to get back on a trail that went up hill. Thankfully Tom was willing to follow me.  Of course one trail went aggressively uphill 1200 feet in less than an hour’s walk and the other hike took five hours round trip. To me, they were both worth the effort and breathlessness (we started at 9000 ft).

 A new hike for me was our five hour trek up to Mohawk Lakes and back. It was so beautiful at the Upper Lake that I literally cried.
