Not out of the mountains yet....

Before we made our descent to the lowlands of Denver, CO, we had more mountains to climb. We made our way east to the resort city of Winter Park, CO. My friend Ryan is up there cooking for his daily bread (but probably doing more snowboarding, longboarding, biking and other great stuff). He's living it up in a natural paradise with his girl Valerie.

Kristina and Ryan before we hit the trail.

We did some walking to the resort, on the way we saw this little guy. He didn't seem to mind us at all.


After exploring the resort and town, we mostly hung out and drank some beer. Ryan and Valerie then hooked it up with a three meat trio: elk, halibut, and pork. Put some veggies on the side and it rivaled any trio put on this earth (sorry Larry, Moe, and Curly). We crashed maybe earlier than usual, maybe our brains went on vacation, maybe out stomachs weighed us like anchors to the mattress so soft. I don't know, but what I do know is call us satisfied and then some.

Either the water goes East or the water goes West, but it can't stay here.
(except for that snow, that will be there for a bit)

Thanks again Ryan and Valerie, you proved to be wonderfully entertaining hosts for our stop over in Winter Park. We loved the fresh mountain air!

Ryan and I.
