WANTED: a vacation from our vacation!

"It's a round trip. Getting to the summit is optional, getting down is mandatory."
-Ed Viesturs

Our trip to Colorado last week was just was we needed. A break from the new day-to-day grind. A chance to reconnect and spend time together. With plenty of opportunities for adventure...

A quick recap:

Day 1 | Thursday: Flew into DEN. Explored Denver with our friends Blain and Katie.
Day 2 | Friday: Explored Denver. Denver Museum of Nature and Science. Denver Museum of Art. The boys biked up Lookout Mountain.
Day 3 | Saturday: Watched Stage 6 of the USA Pro Cycling Challenge. I was at the festival in downtown Denver. The boys watched from their bikes after climbing the route themselves.
Day 4 | Sunday: Hiked Grays and Torreys Combo Trail (two 14ers in one morning!). Wandered Main Street in both Frisco and Breckenridge.
Day 5 | Monday: Hiked Mt. Bierstadt Trail (another 14er!). Met up with our friend Ethan in Leadville.
Day 6 | Tuesday: Made our way through Golden on the way back to Denver. Rocked out at the Mumford and Sons at Red Rocks Amphitheater.
Day 7 | Wednesday: Flew back to ATL. Then drove back to SC.

Needless to say, going back to work on Thursday was a bit of a challenge.
