A High Altitude Vacation - Denver & Boulder, Part III

Next stop: Boulder/Denver area.  We spent a few days in Boulder with Maury, crashing at his place and seeing some old friends.  Jarod climbed a route in Eldo and I had a bit of Boulder's famous chai.  While he was out, I felt a bit of a wild streak and pierced my nose "on the hill".  So far, no regrets. 

Next we went on to Denver and had a nice Mongolian dinner downtown. 

Our friends, Nate & Julie Hoag, invited us to cheap seats in the Rock Pile to watch the Rockies take on the Cubbies right down the road from our restaurant.  

We stayed a few nites with Jack & Megan Fisher who also live in Denver.  It was great to see them!  We tubed down a little river through Golden, CO [the dogs LOVED it].

Then we had a converging of friends barbecue in their backyard!  I really wish I would have taken a picture of everyone who made it up for the barbecue.  It was basically a K-CO reunion.  It was great to catch Mitch & Millie in town and meet their new son, Tegegne.  That was a FANTASTIC evening!  

Our last morning in Denver was spent with the Fisher's eating at a Colorado famous brunch place, 'Lucille's' (think down home cajun - YUM)

Next, a 7 hour drive down to Durango, Colorado...
