Boulder Canyon

Boulder Canyon

In yesterday’s post, I mentioned that Rocky Mountain National Park is less than an hour away by car. Having the park so close is certainly a good reason to visit it often. However, there is stuff like this (below) in Boulder Canyon, which is only about 15 minutes away from our place by bicycle. This picture is from this morning’s mountain bike ride. I guess what I’m really trying to say is, this is a nice place to live and do stuff outdoors!

Twice in the last two weeks we have visited Rocky Mountain National Park. A while ago we realized “Hey! We live less than an hour from a National Park! We should visit it more often.” And so we are trying to do that. Two weeks ago we went with Melissa’s brother, Matt, and his lady friend, Kelly. Today it was just the two of us. Here are some pictures from the two visits.
