The Long Cut (Part 2)

So we finally get out of town, like an hour after we leave. And decide to take the peak to peak highway again. This time, there’s no snow! Again, we stop and wander about in various places. Lunch in Nederaland at Happy Trails, where we… Continue Reading “The Long Cut (Part 2)”

The Long Cut (Part One)

We bugged out early from our vacation, and it’s a good thing.

Up Trail Ridge Road (Most of the Way)

Yesterday we went up most of the way across Trail Ridge Road. I got a bit of altitude sickness at Lava Cliffs, so we came back down. But that’s pretty much the highest point, but I realized i was not enjoying myself and that there… Continue Reading “Up Trail Ridge Road (Most of the Way)”

Scenic Drive (an Understatement)

The Denver part of our trip came to an end, and we decided to take the long cut back to the cabin. Four hours, and two snowstorms later, we completed the 65 mile trek.

Wisconsin End…

Memory boxes

OK, so this is kind of similar to the adventure box – which we’ve moved the adventures to their own box now. But on our random journeys we tend to pick up detritus. Whether it’s a map, a cool rock, brochures, random “toys” from… Continue Reading “Memory boxes”
