You gotta love summer, we had another great weekend. Bonnie and I flew out to Colorado for a wedding on Friday. This is the first trip we've taken without dogs or Finn since he was born. The celebration took place in Evergreen, which is just west of Denver. The wedding was a lot of fun and it was good to see friends from back in CA, as well as folks we haven't seen in years. We also got the chance to have breakfast with a current student of ours. All in all it was a great weekend. We missed Finn and the girls but it was good to have sometime to ourselves. Thanks for taking care of the family while we were out of town Grandma.

Here is a shot of the view outside of the cabin we stayed at. We were at an elevation of nearly 9,000' and it felt like it when I went of runs.

We spent Saturday morning exploring Mt. Evans. Its the highest paved road in the U.S. just over 14,200'. We could really feel the elevation here. There was a lot of cyclists making their way up the mountain. I'm pretty sure this is something I have to try, both cycling and running...maybe in the same day.

We got back late Monday night so I didn't get back on the bike until yesterday. Just a couple of hours around the area. Today I hope to get out for a bit longer. Friday it looks like Brad and I are going to put in a long day, I hope I can hang with him.
Ride on!
