So, this weekend we celebrated our 13th anniversary, and of course we did it Colorado style. Our day started early with gaiters and hiking boots, warm hats and gloves … and ice!
The snow over this thick sheet of ice was helpful, but we still crashed to the ice several times each.
We were trying to do the Catamount trail outside Green Mountain Falls, but the trail was completely buried in snow and it was difficult to follow. Plus, there were huge sheets of ice hidden under the snow that would take us suddenly by surprise.
Still, it was beautiful.
That’s a waterfall running underneath the ice!
We enjoyed simply being outside with each other for a time, which is really what anniversary celebrations are all about, right?
And smiles, that’s what celebrations are about
In the end, we ended up not doing the Catamount trail, which was marked by blue dots, and ended up doing the Thomas trail, which was marked by yellow dots.
We didn’t care though because we ended our evenings at The Cliffhouse (our absolute favorite in Colorado Springs) in a lovely suite with a fireplace and a big huge tub for long bubble baths while watching the television and eating chocolate cake – the decadence!
It was a lovely, restful weekend with lots of romance and outdoor fun. Thanks honey!
