  • A little Vacation

    Very early Friday morning I woke up to head to glorious LAX to board a plane that would take me to Colorado for the weekend.
    Since I had been awake since Thursday morning around 6am, I thought Id get to take a nap, but no! My boyfriend had other ideas. He wanted to take me to Red Rocks.

    There are a bunch of trails you can go on, which we did for about 20 minutes before I told him I was way too tired for that. He then suggested we walk back to the bottom of the ampatheater and go there.

    Theres the stage

    And a view from the top. Let me tell you, my legs were screaming at me by the time we got to the top. We went in the little visitors center there and saw that they had a little restaurant there, so we sat down to have a bite.
    The view:


    After what felt like the longest walk back to the car, we headed back to Denver, only to find this little gem on the side of the road:

    I cant remember the name of the place, but it was a place that gave out maps of where to find dinosaur bones in the area. It was so cheesy and I loved every second of it. There were several more stegosaurus' that were painted all weird, but my camera died
    We returned home where we cleaned up to go to dinner

    The view:

    After dinner, we drove home and I FINALLY got to go to sleep
    Saturday: Today was my boyfriends bands big show. They were playing the Jagermeister show in Denver with Stone Sour, Shadows Fall and Lacuna Coil.
    After helping him get stuff together, and the rest of the band arrived, we headed to the venue. There, I got my media pass as I was taking the pictures for his band that night






    They did so great. The show was awesome, and every single person we talked to that night was beyond nice.
    Getting home at about midnight, we were all pooped and went right to bed.
    Sunday: We headed to my boyfriends friends house in Evergreen for a BBQ as he was leaving for the Army on the 1st (today).
    The view from the side of the house with the pond:



    Animals!





    Monday: Time to fly home. I was so not ready to leave.
    Colorado was perfect this time I was there. Green with very very little snow anywhere (at least where we were)
    The view I hate most from the plane:

    Becky :ghug: Welcome home although I'm sure it's bittersweet. Great pics and I'm super glad you had a wonderful time and that the concert was amazing.

    I'm sure you are already counting down the days until the next visit!

      Beautiful photos, thank you for sharing. Bummer on the cam dying early, I love that patriotic Stegosaurus though.

        So glad you had a chance to see Red Rocks! I love this time of year in Denver. The weather is always nice, everything is beautifully green. Thanks for sharing the pictures.
        Anything listed on the park maps as an attraction is fair game for inclusion in the Rally.
        I cannot confirm nor deny the inclusion of any attraction in the Rally.



        May the Gumballs Be with You...Always.

        NO GOATS!

                    Nice set of pictures. I love the animals and the water. Living here in Florida we have that but we don't have country like that. Very nice. Good luck to your boyfriends friend in the army.

                            The house his friend lives in, is actually a guest house. Its got 2 bedrooms, a living room, dining room, bathroom and kitchen. The main house is HUGE.
                            I so didnt want to leave there.
