Well, summer went out with a bang here in the Rockies, giving us a nice big blanket of snow for our first snow in town. Not only did it snow in town, I would definitely call it a blizzard, and it snowed on and off for three or four days! Luckily, the sun returned and we saw a beautiful weekend. But, snow is on its way again Thursday - yay!

The resorts have started blowing snow and Loveland and A Basin will open within the next 2-3 weeks. I'm excited to get back on some snow, even if it is a white ribbon of death.

I enjoyed my first off pavement bike ride this past weekend (finally!) through some beautiful scenery on Boreas Pass Road.

Fall is a beautiful time of year here. Some say that it isn't as pretty as New England, but I beg to differ. I think its just as gorgeous, just in a different way!!

Labor Day

Well, Labor Day weekend saw some fun times, especially since I had a four day weekend!

Friday, my friend Michelle and I went to the Taste of Colorado in Denver, where you walk around downtown and buy ridiculously priced bits of food from vendors representing Denver's many restaraunts. There are also crafters and artisans who are offering their cheesy goods for sale. And Grand Funk Railroad played...Everybody's doing a brand new dance now, come on baby...do the LOCOMOTION!

Of course the night ended with beers at the DAM followed by an unexpected trip to Bootleggers, a serious dive bar with a great band. I got to hang out with a cool guy and Michelle got a phone number. Well, I got a phone number FOR her after she left - when does that ever happen, a guy comes up and gives me a number for her. Totally random!

Saturday and Sunday were the Country Music Festival at Copper Mountain where I saw Little Feat, Oakhurst (hippy dancing), and America! Saturday night saw more drinks and dancing at Bootleggers amongst other things. I need to stop staying up until 3 am!

Monday was a trip to Denver for the Rockies game, which was a nice break from partying until 3am :) The Rockies won, whoo hoo (kinda).

Pictures to come!

Happy Anniversary

Today is my one year anniversary of moving to Colorado!

Life has changed quite a lot over the past year, but there's one thing I can't deny: moving to Colorado was one of the best decisions I've ever made, and I am hoping to have many more anniversaries here and enjoy all this place has to offer for many years to come!
